1972 is the fourth album by indie folk musician Josh Rouse. It was released on Rykodisc in 2003.

On this album, Rouse pays homage to 1970s bands. The track "Comeback (Light Therapy)" uses a bass line similar to the Rolling Stones' song "Miss You", and the track "Flight Attendant" lifts the piano line from Elton John's "Song For Guy".
