    "Extended Play" - it comes from when people used vinyl records. It means the record is longer than a single but not long enough to be called an album, or LP.

    EP stands for 'extra play'. LP stands for 'long play'. EPs are too long to be classed as a single (a single has typically 2-3 songs on it) but too short to be classed as an LP (8+ songs usually. Most common would be around 10-13). An EP typically has 4-6 songs on it.

    EP's are generally 7" inch vinyl records that have a couple of songs to a side on them.

    EP's are very popular among the punk set or used as demo records.

    EP means Extended play
