Led Zeppelin‘s entire back catalogue is to finally be made available to download from next month
Led Zeppelin’s eight album back catalogue – previously unavailable to download – will be made available online on November 13 through sites such as iTunes.
Like with The Beatles‘ catalogue which is still not published online, Led Zeppelin previously would not allow their music to be purchased digitally.
“We are pleased that the complete Led Zeppelin catalogue will now be available digitally,” said guitarist Jimmy Page. “The addition of the digital option will better enable fans to obtain their music in whichever manner they prefer.”
However, since Led Zeppelin announced they were to reform for a one-off gig next month, they have made the decision to make their music more widely available.
The band recorded eight LPs between 1969 and 1979 – with all apart from their self-titled debut going to number 1 in both the US and UK albums charts.
Led Zep will also be making their songs available as downloadable ring-tones via a new partnership with communications firm Verizon Wireless.
As previously reported, the band are also to release a new ‘best of’ compilation, ‘Mothership’ – also due for release on November 13. For the full track listing click here.
Their full catalogue is:
Led Zeppelin II

Led Zeppelin IV
