The new song is accompanied by a one-shot video directed by Isaac Deitz, and singer/guitarist Andy Hull says, ""Telepath" is ultimately about the ebb and flow of life long commitment to another person. Recognising that even the best relationships in our lives can have extreme ups and downs. At the end of the day, it’s those that we have chosen to love and, more importantly, those that have chosen to love us that truly matter. This is my attempt to further commit for the long haul."
The Million Masks of God will follow Manchester Orchestra's 2017 album A Black Mile to the Surface, and was produced by Manchester Orchestra's own Andy Hull and Robert McDowell, as well as Catherine Marks (PJ Harvey, The Killers) and Ethan Gruska (Phoebe Bridgers).
