A whole lotta streamin': Led Zeppelin look for digital contract
After years of holding out on the online music subscription bandwagon, Led Zeppelin are finally looking to become streamers of both time and space.
The juggernaut band held out until 2007 to release their catalogue through iTunes, and were sitting on the bleachers along with bands like Pink Floyd, AC/DC, and the Eagles, declining setting up their catalogue for music subscription services. After a long wait, however, Zeppelin is reportedly in talks to ink a deal with a major subscription website. Some of the major contenders looking to score the deal are Rhapsody, Rdio, Spotify, and French subscription service Deezer.
The band has sold more than 111 million albums in the US alone, with 840,000 selling last year, 44 years after the band's inception. In a statement, a spokesperson from the band's home label, Warner Music Group, said, "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."
