In 2007, Led Zeppelin was among a handful of recording artists--including Radiohead, the Beatles, and AC/DC--that refused to share its music on streaming platforms like iTunes. That all changed on November 13, 2007, when Led Zeppelin finally relented, releasing the band's entire discography on digital streaming services.
On that same day, the group made the most of the moment by releasing a new compilation album, Mothership. Featuring tracks from all of the band's studio LPs as selected by surviving members John Paul Jones, Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, the release boasted a cover designed by street art legend, Shepard Fairey, of Obey Giant fame.
Expanding editions of Mothership included live content from the previously released Led Zeppelin DVD from 2003. In 2008, the album was issued on a special edition 4-LP 180-gram vinyl set.
