The one and only Led Zeppelin has been added to the extensive libraries of Spotify, allowing in a variety of albums over the next month. Starting today – December 11th, 2013, Led Zeppelin albums will begin to be ushered in with “Led Zeppelin” and “Led Zeppelin II”, both from 1969. After that it’s December 12th with the release of III and the untitled 4th album, these originally released in 1970 and 1971.
Down the line you’ll find December 14th bringing on Houses of the Holy and Physical Graffiti, then a whole dish up on the 15th. The final gush includes The Song Remains the Same, Coda, BBC Sessions, How The West Was Won, Mothership, and Celebration Day, bringing the collection all the way up to present day.
The announcement of this addition of Led Zeppelin music was made this week by Spotify CEO and Founder Daniel Ek in New York City. It was also made clear that the release of each of these albums would be made available at midnight local time – wherever you happen to be situated – for the next four days. This release includes the full (official) catalog of studio and live albums from start to finish.
This release includes the band’s Swan Song / Atlantic catalog, while a whole bevy of releases – unofficial, the most of them – including live albums and bootlegs – will still need to be sought out by you, the superfan. Keep at it!
This news also joins word that Spotify will be able to be used on smartphones and tablets now without cost. Have a peek at that release as well, and start streaming at your leisure.
