Led Zeppelin Added to Spotify
It’s official: Led Zeppelin are on Spotify. Fans of the band can now hear the their 1969 release’s Led Zeppelin and Led Zeppelin II on the popular music streaming service, and the rest of the legendary rock quartet’s Swan Song/Atlantic album catalog will be gradually made available throughout the week. Led Zeppelin III and their (officially untitled) album Led Zeppelin IV will be on Spotify tomorrow, while House of the Holy and Physical Graffiti will be on the service this Friday. Presence and In Through The Out Door will then be added on Saturday, with The Song Remains The Same, Coda, BBC Sessions, How The West Was Won, Mothership and Celebration Day will round things out on Sunday.
Spotify is one of many music streaming services that began negotiating with the Led Zeppelin camp back in January, and it looks they beat out some of their smaller competitors such as Rhapsody and Rdio. In addition to adding the Zeppelin catlog, Spotify has also announced that it will begin allowing users of its free platform to put a limited amount of music on their phones.
As previously reported, Led Zeppelin’s 2012 live album Celebration Day was recently nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album, while the release’s rendition of “Kashmir” picked up a nomination for Best Rock Performance.
