After years of stubbornly refusing to join the music streaming community the remaining members of Led Zeppelin have finally relented. As of Sunday (December 15), the band’s entire catalog is available on Spotify.
Spotify co-founder Daniel Ek made the announcement at a press conference last week during which he also revealed that Spotify will release a free ad-driven service for mobile devices, much like what they offer their desktop users today. The Led Zeppelin catalog was rolled out gradually with two studio albums being released per day, before the remainder of the band’s work including compilations and live recordings was released on Sunday.
Earlier in the year Pink Floyd decided to allow their music to be streamed through Spotify after being fierce opponents to online streaming for years. The last big holdouts that have yet to join the streaming bandwagon include AC/DC and the Beatles.
