Toys in the Attic is the third album by American rock band Aerosmith, released in April 1975 by Columbia Records. The album's first single release, "Sweet Emotion", was released a month later on May 19 and "Walk This Way" was later released on August 28 in the same year (see 1975 in music). The album is their second-most commercially successful studio LP, with eight million copies sold in the United States alone, according to the Recording Industry Association of America.
