Ana José Nacho is a compilation album by the group Mecano. It was released in 1998, and was produced by the group itself. There are two editions: Spain and France. It includes 8 new songs by the brothers Cano: José and Nacho; these tracks were recorded in CTS Studios and Belsize Park in London; and Red Led and Eurosonic in Madrid.

Spain edition[edit]

This edition was presented in 2 CDs. The Spanish release includes eight new songs, six of which were culled out from the group's previous work, the album Aidalai; the other two are new versions of their successful song "Aire" (Air) and the song named "El club de los humildes" (The club of the humble ones).

The other six "new" songs are "Cuerpo y corazón" (Body and heart) that talks about the world of prostitution; "Otro muerto" (Another dead person) that shows different interpretations around the theme of death and terrorism; "Stereosexual", a story about a man questioning his sexuality (It was censored in some countries of Latin America), "El mundo futuro" (The future world) exhibits a concern for a life and feelings increasingly material and superficial; "Esto no es una canción" (This is not a song) tells a tragic story about how drug addiction is destroying the life of a man; and "Los piratas del amor" (Pirates of love) tells the experiences of men who are promiscuous and womanizers. An altered version of this song entitled "Canción de los piratas" (Song of the Pirates) was released as a single; this altered version featured child-friendly lyrics and was written for Telecinco's "Club Disney" container program.

French edition[edit]

The French edition of this compilation, on a single disc, was released simultaneously with the Spanish one. It includes six new songs in Spanish, the French version of three of them, and a collection of songs from previous albums sung in French.

The three new songs in French are "Le club des modestes" (The club of the humble ones), "Corps et coeur" (Heart and body) and "Frère Soleil, Soeur Lune" (Brother Sun, Sister Moon). "Encore un mort" (Another dead person) was not included due to a last-minute error by the composer, but was recorded and released as a B-side single. The tracks were recorded in London.
