Arc of a Diver is the second solo studio album by singer/multi-instrumentalist Steve Winwood, released in 1980. Winwood played all of the instruments on the album.

Winwood recorded his new ''Arc of a Diver'' in a home studio he built on the farm, singing and playing all the instruments - keyboards, guitar, bass, drums, and percussion - and writing all the music. For lyrics, he drew on the talents of three associates. Most of the words are by Will Jennings, who has written for the Crusaders, among others, and whose imagery and turns of phrase are rather facile. But ''Arc of a Diver,'' by Viv Stanshall, and ''Dust,'' by George Fleming, are first-rate lyrics, and Winwood's impressive playing and arranging and utterly distinctive vocals make several of his collaborations with Mr. Jennings, especially the brooding ''Night Train,'' almost as memorable.

The album entered the English best-seller charts earlier this month and has been receiving extensive American air play since its release here last week. As a comeback gambit, it has already proved itself commercially, and Winwood seems healthy, energetic and ready to capitalize on its success.

The album was also included in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
