The EP was announced for release via Knight's official web site on 20 January 2012. It is due for release on 12 February 2012, the same day as "Round and Around", the fourth single from her album Soul UK is released. A live version of the single is featured as track 2 of the EP.
The Love Soul: Soul UK Live EP was recorded at Knight's Soul UK album launch event on 7 April 2011, which was held at the Porchester Hall in London. Live video performances of the tracks, "Always and Forever" and "Round and Around" were featured on the DVD that accompanied the album. It is the first time that the live audio version of "Round and Around" has been featured on a Beverley Knight release, whereas "Say I'm Your Number One" was left off the DVD release of the album. The iTunes version of the EP features an extra track, a live version of Lewis Taylor's "Damn".
A week after the release of the EP on 20 February 2012, a video for the opening track, "Always and Forever" was released. The video was directed by Dean Sherwood and was filmed during 2011's Soul UK Tour.
