Previously, Led Zeppelin were one of a number of groups to withhold their music from streaming services, having only agreed to let Apple sell their albums through iTunes in 2007.

Other big name artists who’ve currently resisted signing up include The Beatles, Oasis and AC/DC. Meanwhile, Thom Yorke has criticised Spotify calling it “‘The last desperate fart of a dying corpse”.
