Further Complications, styled "Further complications. is the second solo album by British musician Jarvis Cocker, released in the UK on 18 May 2009. In July 2008, Cocker met Steve Albini in Chicago at the Pitchfork Music Festival. Together they tested some songs, liked the sound and agreed to record an album together. Chicago performer Daniel Knox sings backing vocals on "Angela" & "Hold Still".

The Scott Walker fan in him will, one day, get it together and make a classic, croony chamber pop follow-up to This Is Hardcore, but, for now, he still seems to be scratching around for a sound. His debut solo release, Jarvis, promised much but delivered little more than a few pleasant, radio-friendly plodders and (snicker), thanks to bonus track 'Cunts Are Still Running The World', a sweary sing-along stating the bleedin' obvious. Further Complications kicks off with a very welcome vitality. Recalling Television's 'Friction', Jarvis spits: "I needed addiction, I needed affliction – to cultivate a personality.
