Hypnosis is one of two songs the Irish singer/songwriter recorded for the Salma Hayek-produced animated film The Prophet.

The breathtakingly beautiful film is based on The Prophet, a collection of poems by Lebanese American author Kahlil Gibran, and features many different styles of animation, which are employed to illustrate each poem.

The video for Hypnosis also offers these stunning styles interweaving throughout.

Irish animator Tomm Moore (The Secret of Kells, Song of the Sea) is just one of several award-winning animators from around the world who have contributed to the film.

Set in a Mediterranean seaside village, Kamila (Salma Hayek) cleans house for exiled artist and poet Mustafa (Liam Neeson), but the more difficult job is keeping her free-spirited young daughter, Almitra (Quvenzhané Wallis), out of trouble.
