Living In Fear is the second studio album by The Power Station, released by Chrysalis-Capitol-Guardian Records on 30 September 1996.

About the albumEdit

In the pre-recording stage of the album, the band had the same lineup as for their previous album in 1985 (Robert Palmer, Andy Taylor, John Taylor and Tony Thompson), and all four musicians worked on the writing and arranging of the songs. However, John Taylor was going through a divorce at the time, as well as entering drug rehab, and pulled out before the album was recorded. Instead Bernard Edwards, the producer, played all bass parts on Living In Fear, and took over as the group's official fourth member. John Taylor still receives writing and arranging credits on the finished album, but does not play on it, and is not listed as a group member.

Unfortunately, Edwards died of pneumonia in Japan before the album was released; the album is dedicated to his memory. These two events did not help the album and it was not a commercial success, with only one single, "She Can Rock It", being released.

The band, now officially a trio, toured in support of the album in 1996 and 1997, with Guy Pratt (bass) and Luke Morley of Thunder (additional guitar) along as session musicians. The setlist contained a mix of Palmer, Chic, old and new songs by The Power Station.
