Fan Club (titled Fun Club in the U.S.[1]) is the debut studio album by Italian singer Alexia released in 1997.[2] The album featured mostly eurodance tracks, as was producer Robyx's speciality. It was released in 1997 after the release of Alexia's fourth single "Uh La La La", yet strangely no further singles were released from the album with the exception of two country specific releases of "Virtual Reality" and "Hold On". A version of "Virtual Reality" had already been released in Italy credited to E.Y.E. featuring Alexia.

Release[edit]

The album was released on CD and would be the first of Alexia's releases to be released by Sony Dancepool in her home country (Sony Code 487887). Despite her now being signed to Sony, some international versions were released on other labels. As had been the policy with her past singles, Blanco Y Negro released the Spanish version, K-Tel the Finnish release, Spotlight the Brazilian version, Polygram the French release and in the US, the album was released by Popular Records under the revised title Fun Club.

At the end of 1997, a limited edition 'Christmas edition' of the album was released.[3] The track listing was slightly altered along with three additional tracks; "It's Christmas Time" which was the song "Hold On" with different lyrics which had been previously released in Brazil on the "Hold On" single, the Beach mix of "Uh La La La" and the JS16 Clubmix of "Virtual Reality" which had been released on the Finnish only release of the said track.
