Hozier's smash hit 'Take Me to Church' has been given an arty makeover by celeb photographer David LaChapelle.

Ukrainian ballet dancer Sergei Polunin features in the stunning promo, which Hozier posted to Twitter last night with the message, "Absolutely blown away by this gorgeous piece of work from David LaChapelle and Sergei Polunin. No words. Thank you!"

Polunin has featured in a Marc Jacobs campaign and is a principal dancer with The Stanislavsky Bad.  The so-called bad boy' of ballet caused shock waves when, at the age of 22, he walked out of the Royal Ballet in the UK.

American photographer David LaChapelle has won countless awards and directed music videos for artists including Florence and the Machine, Jennifer Lopez, Amy Winehouse, and Elton John.
