The 'mystery man' Katy Perry was seen holding hands with at Coachella on Sunday is Florence And The Machine guitarist Robert Ackroyd, NME can reveal.

The pair were spotted in the crowd while Rihanna performed during Calvin Harris' set at the Californian festival, leading tabloid newspapers to question the identity of Perry's new squeeze. Ackroyd plays live and records with Welch, and has a number of co-writing credits on the band's 2009 debut album 'Lungs'.

Perry's trip to the festival also saw her catch sets by the likes of Radiohead and Dr Dre and Snoop Dogg. She later took to Twitter to praise M83's performance, claim Thom Yorke and co's headline set was "spiritual" and reveal she "almost cried" when she saw Tupac's hologram.

Last week the pop star told fans that new new album would be "real fucking dark". The singer, who is currently working on her third studio effort, claimed her next LP would take a serious turn following her divorce from comedian Russell Brand in December.

Perry revealed recently that she turned down a role in Oscar-winning 2011 movie The Help. The singer is instead due to appear in her own 3D concert movie, [i]Katy Perry: Part Of Me[/], in July. ?

Speaking about her 3D movie she said: "I wanted to show people this parade that surrounds me, I wanted them to see the engine. I wanted people to be able to experience the tour and all the joy it brought, which is why we shot it in 3D."
