The group - which included members Syd Barrett , David Gilmour, Nick Mason, Roger Waters, Rick Wright and Bob Klose in various incarnations between 1965 and 1996 - will also release a new `Best Of' collection, collecting together the biggest hits of their career.
Roger Faxon, a spokesperson for the group's record company, EMI, said: "We have worked together for more than a year on this programme which incorporates all the elements that have made Pink Floyd one of the most inspiring forces in modern music.
"Why Pink Floyd? Because their music is without equal and these exciting new releases will allow music fans to rediscover their incredible legacy and demonstrate that an appreciation for artistic quality never goes out of fashion."
