Album is an album.
Record is a record. It’s old-timey language for “song that was commercially released as a single,” even though singles are very different beasts now.
Album = Album
Record = Single
Song = Award for songwriting for a song... I think it has to still be commercially released as a single, but those days a video counts I guess.
