A film about the late Syd Barrett, the original frontman and co-founder of Pink Floyd, will be released this year.

Directed by Roddy Bogawa and the late album cover designer Storm Thorgerson, who worked with the band on several LPs, the documentary titled Have You Got It Yet? is set to make its debut in U.K. theaters on May 15, followed by the U.S. and Canada in late June.

The film will focus on the legacy of the singer and his role in the legendary band during his tenure. It includes interviews with surviving band members David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and Roger Waters, as well as contributions from original Pink Floyd managers Peter Jenner and Andrew King. Interviews with Pete Townshend and Blur guitarist Graham Coxon are also featured in the film.

Bogawa said in a press release:

“Would anyone care about the story of Syd Barrett if Pink Floyd hadn’t become one of the biggest bands of all time? Would Pink Floyd have existed without Syd?

“I miss Storm probably in the same way as many of those in our film miss Syd, a friend who they dearly loved and shared fond memories and adventures – Syd just happened to become one of the most famous cult icons in music.”

Producer Orian Williams added:

“The music of Pink Floyd bears witness to Syd Barrett’s exceptional talent and inner turmoil.

“Their unconventional approach and ground-breaking sound expanded the horizons of music. Friends, family, bandmates and admirers shed light on all aspects of Syd’s enigmatic life in our film.”
