"Don't Let It Go to Your Head" was the first single released in anticipation of what was expected to be Fefe Dobson's second album, Sunday Love. The single is available for digital download at online retailers.

There is a "For Promotional Use Only" CD, sometimes referred to as a DJ single that includes a 10-second "CALLOUT" in addition to the song itself. It is in a trifold digipack that displays the lyrics and credits.[2]
The song also appears in:


The album was pushed back a number of times before its eventual cancellation.

"Don't Let It Go to Your Head" is covered by Lilyjets, a Norwegian girl group, as a single[5] from their debut album 3rd Floor (2006).[6] They also produced an official music video. The song was also covered by Jordin Sparks on her second album Battlefield (2009).[7][8] Shortly after Sparks' album was released Dobson said, "Jordin Sparks just did [that song], which was on Sunday Love, which was very cool. She did kind of, like, a more R&B version of it, which I think is really nice, actually. It was really cool that she didn't try and do a rock version of it, and she did what she's more comfortable with, which I thought was awesome."[9]
