    One-time Pink Floyd singer Syd Barrett was a legendary musician with a brief music career. A new compilation will fuse the singer's solo work with the songs he created with Pink Floyd. The comp is called An Introduction to Syd Barrett and boasts six tracks from the Floyd era of his career as well as 12 from his solo years; many have been remixed for the album.

    Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour executive produced the set, which comes out overseas on October 4. The domestic release date has yet to be determined or revealed, so you may just have to rely on importing it for now.

    What is your favorite Pink Floyd song ever?
