Led Zeppelin catalog joins Spotify streaming service

By Daniel S Levine,

If you are among the few people who don’t own the albums of Led Zeppelin, you’ll get a chance to hear what you’ve been missing on Spotify. The streaming service has signed an exclusive deal to add the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame group’s music.

The news was first reported earlier today by The New York Times, citing a source close to the deal, which will make Spotify the exclusive streaming location for “Rock And Roll,” “Stairway To Heaven,” “Dazed and Confused” and the rest of the Zeppelin catalog.

According to Businessweek, Spotify later confirmed the deal and the music is already available.

The news comes just days after it was reported that Spotify is finally making its mobile app free to use for everyone, not just paid subscribers.

Led Zeppelin, which was made up of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and the late John Bonham, were late to the digital game, not joining iTunes until 2007. The group recorded albums between 1969 and 1979, breaking up after Bonham’s death in 1980. Page, Plant and Jones have reunited on rare occasions and received the Kennedy Center Honors last year.
