Another Night is the 1995 U.S. re-release of the second album from Real McCoy (aka MC Sar & The Real McCoy) by Arista Records. Upon release in the U.S. and the U.K. in 1995, it peaked at No. 6 on the UK Albums Chart and No.13 on the U.S. Billboard 200. However, a different version of the album had already been released in Europe by Hansa Records under the title “Space Invaders” in 1994."[2] The "Space Invaders" version of the album had already been a huge success in Europe. The album featured the hit singles “Another Night," “Run Away”, "Love & Devotion", and “Automatic Lover (Call for Love)."[3]

When Clive Davis of Arista Records took notice of the massive success of the "Space Invaders" album in Europe, he immediately wanted to bring MC Sar & The Real McCoy to the American market in the same manner he had done with the group Ace of Base. Once Arista negotiated a distribution deal with Hansa Records, the “Space Invaders” album was re-titled to “Another Night” and the group name was shortened to just "Real McCoy." The album cover art and imagery for the re-release was also changed to reflect more positive and romantic themes instead of the dark imagery of the "Space Invaders" album art. Singer Vanessa Mason was also added to the group's live act, music videos, marketing and new CD cover art thus turning Real McCoy now into a trio act instead of a duo. Several songs from the original Space Invaders version of the album were removed and the songs “Ooh Boy,” “Come and Get Your Love,” “Sleeping with an Angel” “If You Should Ever Be Lonely (Deep In The Night)” were recorded and added to the re-release.[4]
