Led Zeppelin Goes Digital!

October 15, 2007

It’s been a long time in coming, but Led Zeppelin, one of the last superstar acts to refrain from selling its music online, is finally offering its catalog to digital-music fans.

Under a series of new agreements, the band will make its songs available first as ringtones and similar mobile features starting this week in an exclusive deal with Verizon Wireless. Digital downloads of songs from the band’s eight studio albums and other recordings are expected to be available through Verizon and digital-music services, including iTunes, on Nov. 13.

Led Zeppelin’s decision to sell its music online coincides with the end of a fierce bidding war over the rights to administer the band’s catalog of songs. Under a separate deal the band is to receive an estimated $60 million in exchange for extending its ties to its longtime music publisher for at least 10 years
