Radiohead Haven't Actually Sued Lana Del Rey, Publishers Say

Radiohead Deny Lana Del Rey Lawsuit

Lana Del Rey Says Radiohead Is Suing Her For Allegedly Copying Band's 'Creep'

Del Rey may have taken to Twitter to clearly state her song wasn't inspired by the Radiohead hit, but she did offer nearly half of the song's publishing revenues.

"It's true about the lawsuit. Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court".

She later discussed the alleged legal battle at a live show, claiming that "Get Free" could be removed from her album as a result. As far as Radiohead's publisher Warner/Chappell Music is concerned, however, this drama hasn't actually gotten legal yet.

Interestingly, Radiohead themselves were successfully sued by The Hollies over Creep's similarities to The Air That I Breathe. "It's clear that the verses of "Get Free" use musical elements found in the verses of "Creep' and we've requested that this be acknowledged in favor of all writers of Creep'".

"I just want to let you know, regardless if it gets taken down off of everything, that those sentiments that I wrote... that I really am going to strive for them, even if that song is not on future physical releases of the record", she said.

Del Rey was not the first musician to be accused of plagiarism, and she certainly will not be the last.

Read Lana Del Rey's original tweet below. The band was said to want songwriting credit, money or both.

"It's understood that Radiohead's team are hoping for the band to either receive compensation or be credited on the list of songwriters to receive royalties".

The song, like the Lust For Life album, features more hopeful and positive themes compared to Lana's previous works but retains the deeply personal lyrics and melancholic tunes she is best known for.

"Whats hilarious is that the point in that song that Radiohead got sued over, is the chord progression, which basically matches that of the chord progression in a lot of similar ways, in the Lana Del Rey song".
