This is one of two new songs recorded for Thousand Foot Crutch's first greatest hits album, Made In Canada: The 1998-2010 Collection
(the other one is "Searchlight
"). Although written during the time period between the recording of their 2009 set Welcome to the Masquerade
and 2012's The End Is Where We Begin
, the pair of tracks were laid down for the first time in the summer of 2013. "These are both songs that we loved, but they didn't quite fit the body of the last two records," explains Thousand Foot Krutch frontman, Trevor McNevan. "We thought it was only fitting to record them and include them in this compilation."
"'Complicate You' has more of a heavy funk feel to it, which we loved," added the vocalist. "It's more of a fun, feel good song about meeting someone that completely catches you off guard (in a good way). It's about a guy/girl randomly meeting for the first time, and captures those same quirky feelings you get when that happens. I thought it was an honest and funny perspective on that."
