Based on the two "official" industry definitions of EP and Allie X's decision not to call it one, I'd say…album.
...and her label, Sleepless Rec., also calls it "debut album" Btw, according to Discogs guidelines, record label is a reliable source to define format.

10 FEBRUARY 2015 – TORONTO ON – Toronto-born Allie X has announced details of her much anticipated debut record. CollXtion I will be released April 07 via Sleepless Records/ Universal Music Canada the country's leading music company.
"I am very pleased to announce CollXtion I," Allie X says of this release, "and hopefully answer some questions you and I both have. As you collect the pieces of CollXtion I, I hope you will feel comfortable to adopt X into your own life."
CollXtion I is a full multimedia Xperience centered around seven songs. It is the first in a series of CollXtions to be issued in the coming months. CollXtion I will allow participants to gather songs, videos, digital installations and other media that begin to fashion the world of a protagonist known as "X". Designed as both a multimedia, narrative and collaborative experience, CollXtion I will be accompanied by a variety of features, including X's notorious spinning GIFs, some of the raw components used by X to create her striking work such as song stems and photo layers and a comic which will reveal the first chapter in the Story of X. Fans are encouraged to become participants in X's world by using these elements to make their own "Xart" which will then be featured in X's "Xhibit" digital gallery HERE. More details to be revealed leading up to April 07.
After moving to LA, Allie X unleashed "CATCH" in early 2014, creating an online audience, notably including Katy Perry, who described herself as "obsessed" with the track in a tweet to her 64+ million Twitter followers. She was not alone in championing "CATCH".
"A relentless and immediate sugar rush with a slight metallic aftertaste. It's a glorious kiss-off as well as quite the introduction to the Toronto-born artist." -Pitchfork
"The best song of the year so far… [‘CATCH' is] everything that's wonderful about under-the-radar pop music right now: immaculate hooks, pristine synth work, vocal versatility, bold atmospherics and a beating, bursting heart." – Idolator
"The Los Angeles by-way-of-Toronto singer-songwriter has created her own language for music and art—reinventing the way the music industry operates." -Interview Magazine
