Sunday Love was expected to be Fefe Dobson's second album.

Dobson began work on her second album 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 U.S. release date of September 20, 2005. Neither single released from the album—"Don't Let It Go to Your Head"[2] or "This Is My Life"[3]—charted. There is an official music video for "Don't Let It Go to Your Head".[4]
However, no video was made for "This Is My Life".

The album was pushed back a number of times before its eventual cancellation. There were some good reviews including the highest rating given on any of the new CD's that were reviewed in the July 2006 issue of Vibe.[5] Dobson commented on her MySpace blog, after the album was cancelled, "I always believe everything happens for a reason, and that change is a very good thing."

Other than the two singles, the only officially released song was "Be Strong", on the It's a Boy Girl Thing soundtrack.[6]

Dobson's "Don't Let It Go to Your Head" is covered by Lilyjets, a Norwegian girl group, as a single[7] from their 2006 debut album 3rd Floor.[8] They also produced an official music video.[9]

The music of "This Is My Life" is used by the Taiwanese girl-group S.H.E in their song: "I Love Trouble" (我愛烦恼) on their 2008 album FM S.H.E[10] which became quite popular in Asia.

"Don't Let It Go to Your Head" is also covered by Rockett Queen on their 2008 album Kiss and Tell[11][12] and Jordin Sparks on her 2009 sophomore album Battlefield.[13][14][15] Shortly after Jordin's 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."[16] It was later revealed that Sparks' version is to be released as a single in the UK on January 4, 2010.[17]

The unreleased track "As a Blonde"[18] is covered on Selena Gomez & The Scene's 2009 debut album Kiss & Tell.[19][20]
