Dive is the third studio album by English soprano Sarah Brightman. It is her first album with producer Frank Peterson, and a marked departure from her previous operatic works. Its unifying theme is water and the ocean. The song "Captain Nemo" is a cover of the 1990 Dive single. "Johnny Wanna Live" is a cover of the 1992 Sandra song. "Once in a Lifetime" is a cover of the Gregorian song from 1991's Sadisfaction, produced by Frank Peterson, though with different lyrics alluding to BDSM.
