Album to CD to . . . what?

We used to say that a musical artist put out a new album. And then, when we didn't buy albums anymore, we spoke about an artist's latest CD

So what the heck do we say now? No one buys CDs anymore. We download our music. Is it the artist's latest digital burst?

What do we call this stuff? I know iTunes still calls them albums, but that just doesn't work for me anymore.

Hmmmm. I just bought Bon Iver's latest . . . what?
