What's the difference between a single, an EP and an album?

Single

A single is considered 1-3 songs that are each less than 10 minutes in length.

When releasing a single, don't add “- Single” to your track or album titles.
Stores will do that for you if they need it.

EPs
An EP is considered 1-3 songs with one song of at least 10 minutes in length and a total running time of 30 minutes or less.

Or an EP is considered 4-6 songs with a total running time of 30 minutes or less.

Albums

An album is considered to be 6 or more songs running over 30 minutes in length and is considered to be one product.
