Fly Away is a 1978 album by the French disco group, Voyage. Their second release repeated the success of their debut released earlier in the year. All the cuts on Fly Away hit number one on the disco chart early in 1979 for one week.[2] Unlike the cuts on their debut album, one track from Fly Away made the pop singles chart, when "Souvenirs" made it to number 41 on the pop singles chart. The track also became Voyage's second and last chart entry on the soul singles chart, when "Souvenirs" made it to no. 73.[3]
