From November 13th the band’s original albums including Led Zeppelin (1969), Led Zeppelin II (1969), Led Zeppelin III (1970), Untitled fourth album (1971), Houses Of The Holy (1973), Physical Graffiti (1975), Presence (1976), The Song Remains The Same (1976; recently reworked for reissue on November 19), In Through The Out Door (1979), Coda (1982), How The West Was Won (2003), and Mothership (available November 13). 

In a statement Jimmy Page said “We are pleased that the complete Led Zeppelin catalogue will now be available digitally. The addition of the digital option will better enable fans to obtain our music in whichever manner that they prefer.”

“The Led Zeppelin catalogue is a highly anticipated and essential addition to the world’s leading digital music services,” said Edgar Bronfman, Jr., Chairman and CEO of Warner Music Group. “In their 12 years together, Zeppelin created one of the most powerful, influential, and timeless bodies of work in the history of modern music. They not only enjoyed enormous commercial success, but their ground-breaking musical innovation transformed the cultural landscape. We have been planning for this landmark day for a long time, and we look forward to expanding Led Zeppelin’s presence across a full array of digital platforms.”

In a separate deal, US mobile network Verizon Wireless announced it would be offering Led Zeppelin’s music to its customers via ring tones, alert tones and full-song downloads. 

“We are thrilled to deliver this anxiously awaited catalogue,” said Ed Ruth, its director of digital music.
