Expresso 2222 is the fifth studio album by Brazilian artist Gilberto Gil, released in June 1972 by Philips Records (currently Universal Music).[2] In October 2007, the magazine Rolling Stone's Brazilian edition published a list of the 100 Greatest Albums of Brazilian Music, in which Expresso 2222 featured at number 26.[3]

The album name is a homage to a train that Gil used to take to head out of his native town in the direction of Salvador, Bahia. The album marks the return of Gil to Brazil after a three-year exile in London.[2]
