Masque is the fourth regular studio album by The Mission which was released in January 1992 on the Vertigo sub-label of Mercury Records. Peaking at #23 in the UK albums chart, it failed to repeat the commercial success of the previous two official studio albums and marked the beginning of The Mission's decline in popularity; it was also the band's last album to achieve a UK top 40 position. Masque included the singles "Never Again" (UK #34), "Like a Child Again" (#UK 30) and "Shades of Green Pt. 2". The album included a number of outside collaborators, including Martin Allcock, Anthony Thistlethwaite and Miles Hunt.
The album was reissued in February 2008. The expanded release had four bonus tracks including the cover of Blondie's "Atomic" recorded for the NME's Ruby Trax compilation, released in November 1992.
