Voyage is the 1977 self-titled debut album by French disco group, Voyage. The songs on the album paid a nodding homage to musical styles of different regions of the world, as if the band and its listeners were taking a jet set trip around the world, finally landing triumphantly in America, as if it were the center of the disco universe, with the song Lady America.

As was the case with a number of disco albums during the 1970s, all cuts of Voyage's debut release made it to number one on the disco chart. In Voyage's case, they went to number one on the disco chart with their debut release for three weeks.[2] Although no cuts made the US pop singles chart, the single "From East to West" peaked at number eighty-five on the soul singles chart.[3] Overseas, "From East to West" went to number 13 on the UK Singles Chart.
