Led Zeppelin Set To Stream Back Catalogue
Rock legends Led Zeppelin are in negotiations with a number of streaming services for the right to stream the band's back catalogue. Spotify, Rhapsody, Rdio and Deezer are reportedly being considered by the band as the service that will hold exclusive rights to stream their albums. A spokesperson for Warner Music Group has issued the following statement: "We're excited about the opportunity to collaborate with Led Zeppelin to activate streaming rights for their catalog. We're supportive of the band's discussions with W.M.G.'s streaming service partners to create a window of exclusivity to maximize the impact of this launch." Led Zeppelin's move to streaming could be a major boost for the format, which has been slow to build a large customer base. That Led Zeppelin are looking into streaming comes as some surprise, given that the band were one of the last major groups not to sign up to iTunes (the Led Zeppelin catalogue did not appear on that service until 2007). Their move to streaming could prompt other hesitant acts, such as Pink Floyd, The Eagles and AC/DC to follow suit. New versions of the Led Zeppelin back catalogue, mastered for iTunes, were released through the digital retailer back in December. These mastered for iTunes versions are different from the remastered versions that Jimmy Page is currently preparing for CD release. Those versions will be released as boxed-sets that feature bonus tracks.
