Stuck in the '50s: Florence Welch sports rockabilly-style headscarf and bikini as she frolics with tattooed mystery boyfriend

Even when she's off the stage and lounging on a sunny beach with her friends, Florence Welch doesn't break out of character.

The singer was seen sporting a cute red rockabilly-style headscarf as she lapped up the scorching weather in Rio de Janeiro.

The 25-year-old is holidaying with her new mystery boyfriend and friends.

She showed off her endless legs and toned stomach in a black bikini, with a bandeau top and high-waisted bottoms.

At one point, the Florence And The
Machine singer looked as though she was patting a full stomach, but she
had noting to worry about.

The redhead held hands with her man, who wore red swimming trunks and sported several tattoos on his arms.

The pair held hands as they frolicked in the sea, looking content with one another.

She was seen earlier this week, enjoying a kiss with her beau.

The new man in her life comes after
she split from long-term love, literary editor Stuart Hammond last year
after several years together.

An earlier break-up in 2009 inspired her first album Lungs.
Rather tellingly, songs from Ceremonials appear to echo Welch's feelings in the last few months of her romance with Hammond.

She told the Daily Beast recently: 'Some of the songs are so much about that feeling of guilt and feeling like you’re not able to be there for people.

'On this record, I think I’m questioning….You can be a good girlfriend or you can sink yourself into being a performer.'

She admitted the couple struggled to schedule quality time together because of her erratic timetable and frequent travelling.

She said: 'It seems really unfair to take someone who has their own stuff to do and try to fit their life into this mad schedule.

'We were both really sad, but kind of just not able to have the time to fix it. It’s not a sense of someone dumping someone else.'
