Led Zeppelin are in talks to stream their back catalogue online.

The band are looking at giving at various music services including Spotify, Rdio and Rhapsody the right to put their music online, reports The New York Times. A deal would be a rare digital leap forward for Zeppelin, who waited until 2007 before they made their albums available through iTunes.

Metallica, who became embroiled in legal action with Napster in the past, made a similar digital switch recently when they allowed Spotify to upload their back catalogue.

Meanwhile, Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page also recently revealed that he is working on remastering a number of the bands albums with a view to releasing them next year.

Page, who also recently oversaw the DVD release of 'Celebration Day', Led Zeppelin's 2007 O2 Arena gig, revealed that he is working on extra material for each album the band recorded and that they will see the light of day in a series of boxset releases, starting in 2013.

Speaking about his plans, Page said: "There are a number of Led Zeppelin projects that will come out next year because there are different versions of tracks that we have that can be added to the album so there will be box sets of material that will come out, starting next year. There will be one box set per album with extra music that will surface."
