Un autre univers (2005) is the fifth studio album, and first entirely French language release, from Australian singer Tina Arena. It successfully climbed to #9 in the French chart in November 2006, its highest position since entering the chart almost a year earlier. The album was certified platinum in France.

The album has a cool blend of acoustic guitars, eastern strings and driving rhythms - a variety of styles that make up the 13 track offering including a duet with the legendary French singer Henri Salvador. The record's title track is actually a French language re-working of "Woman" from her previous studio album, Just Me. The title roughly translates into English as "Another Universe".

Lead single "Aimer jusqu'à l'impossible" was her biggest French hit to date after debuting at #3 on the French national charts[1] in November 2005 and remaining in the top 5 for over 10 weeks.[2] In February 2006 the single achieved platinum sales in France.[3] A second single "Je m'appelle Bagdad" was released in May and a third "Tu aurais dû me dire (Oser parler d'amour)" in October 2006.

The album peaked at #9 on the French Albums Chart for one week, it stayed in the top 100 for sixty-two weeks and a total of seventy-eight weeks in the top 200. The album became the 127th highest selling album in France for 2005 and the 38th for 2006.

In Belgium, it entered the Belgian (Wallonia) Albums Chart at #70 on 17 December 2005, then successfully moved to its peak position of #24 on July 29, 2006, the album spent a total of fifty-three weeks in the top 100.
