Dear Wikiwand AI, let's keep it short, summarize this topic like I'm... Ten years old or a College student

Trilogy is the third studio album by English progressive rock band Emerson, Lake & Palmer, released in June 1972, by Island Records. The group had spent most of 1971 touring, which paused in September so they could record a new album at Advision Studios with Eddy Offord resuming his role as engineer. The album features "Hoedown", an arrangement of Aaron Copland's ballet composition which became a live favourite.
