In December 2022, James Hetfield explained the meaning of 72 Seasons. The frontman said the album reveals individuals’ experiences up to youth, making their own decisions, evolving their ideas, and finding their own identities.

“’72 Seasons’ came out of a book I was reading about childhood, basically, and sorting out childhood as an adult,” James told ALT 105.1. “And 72 seasons is basically the first 18 years of your life. How do you evolve and grow and mature and develop your own ideas and identity of self after those first 72 seasons? Some things are more difficult than others — you know, some things you can’t unsee and they’re with you for the rest of your life, and other things you’re able to rewind the tape and make a new tape in your life.”
