Watch U2's Haunting 'Sleep Like a Baby Tonight' Video

Update: The "Sleep Like a Baby Tonight" music video is now available only on the Films of Innocence DVD.

The ninth cut on Song of Innocence, "Sleep Like a Baby Tonight" is a somber highlight, telling the story of someone whose "purple robes are folded on the kitchen chair" and who goes "through the day like knife through butter."

Now, Belgian muralist ROA has given the tune the eerie, moving music video it deserves, creating a full, gray, animated world from his pen and ink sketches. The clip was produced for U2's new Films of Innocence, a collection of 11 shorts inspired by the band's latest release. According to a statement, Bono and Co. took "the political murals of Northern Ireland as a reference point" and hope for the project to "celebrate the unique democratic power of urban art."

The video's release also coincides with the launch of U2's 2015 Innocence + Experience Tour. Tickets for this 19-city run go on sale today and can be purchased through the websites of U2 or LiveNation.

Last week, named Songs of Innocence the best album of 2014 and selected "Sleep Like a Baby" as one of the record's most notable tracks: "This is a record full of the band's stories and triumph, memory and confession detonated with adventure and poise. In its range of sounds, there may be no more complete U2 album: The band bonded its founding post-punk values with dance momentum in 'Volcano' and the raw, jagged 'Raised by Wolves,' and humanized the digital pathos of 'Every Breaking Wave' and the harrowing 'Sleep Like a Baby Tonight,' with the vocal folk-soul warmth of The Joshua Tree."
