|Singles from Sunday Love|
Originally slated for release in 2005, the release date was pushed back a number of times by Island Records before its eventual cancellation. The album had earned good reviews, including the highest rating given on any of the albums reviewed in the July 2006 issue of Vibe magazine. After the album was cancelled, Dobson commented on her MySpace blog, "I always believe everything happens for a reason, and that change is a very good thing." Before its official cancellation, a limited number of copies were shipped to stores, with it being fully leaked on the internet. The album remained unreleased for many years before its 2012 digital release.
Dobson began work on Sunday Love during the summer of 2004. The album's fourteen tracks were recorded over an eight-month period in California. Island Records set an initial US release date of September 20, 2005. Neither single released from the album—"Don't Let It Go to Your Head" or "This Is My Life"—charted. There is an official music video for "Don't Let It Go to Your Head".
However, no video was made for "This Is My Life".
Two samplers were also produced to promote the album:
- "As a Blonde" (Fefe Dobson, Greg Wells, Shelly Peiken) – 2:49
- "In the Kissah" (Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo, Dobson) - 3:09

- "Get You Off" (Dobson, Michelle Robin Lewis, Nina Gordon) – 3:50
- "This Is My Life" (Alexander, Dobson, Steinberg) – 3:49
- "Scar" (Wilder, Dobson) – 4:03

The song "As a Blonde" is covered on Selena Gomez & The Scene's 2009 debut album Kiss & Tell. Jordin Sparks covered "Don't Let Go To Your Head" on her 2009 album Battlefield. 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." Sparks' version was released as a single in the UK on January 4, 2010.
