Robert Plant has officially entered the digital age. The Led Zeppelin singer has started accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Google Plus alongside a redesign of his website, which also features some fresh, exclusive material.

Plant's first 25,000 Twitter followers were rewarded for their online loyalty with an exclusive free download of the rocker's current group, Robert Plant Presents the Sensational Space Shifters, covering Led Zeppelin's "What Is and What Should Never Be" live.

Plant will be using his website to unveil new multimedia projects, like an upcoming 10-part documentary series on his trip to Mali. It'll also serve as a venue to share archived interviews, photos, set lists and more.

His new Internet presence comes with a likely caveat, though: Fans can now hound him harder about his hints that he's open to a Led Zeppelin reunion next year.

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
