One of the last of the megabands to hold out, Led Zeppelin will have its music available on digital platforms from all online retailers beginning Nov. 13.
Songs from all of the eight original albums, which include “Houses of the Holy,” “Led Zeppelin,” “Led Zeppelin II” and “Physical Graffiti,” will be accessible. The band has also made a deal with Verizon to have its songs available as ringtones. Including retrospective collections, Led Zeppelin has sold more than 300 million albums worldwide.
The remaining members of the band — Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones — are regrouping for a concert Nov. 26 in London as a benefit performance for an educational charity of Atlantic Records founder Ahmet Ertegun.
Two weeks earlier, “Mothership,” a 24-track double-CD release of the band’s biggest hits, will be released by Atlantic and Rhino.
“We are pleased that the complete Led Zeppelin catalog will now be available digitally,” said Page in a statement. “The addition of the digital option will better enable fans to obtain their music in whichever manner they prefer.”
