Lana Del Rey Sued By Radiohead Over Her Song ‘Get Free’

Lana Del Rey confirmed on Twitter today, Jan. 8, that Radiohead is suing her for copyright infringement.

Radiohead is suing because of similarities between “Creep” and Rey’s “Get Free” off her album Lust for Life. She wrote on Twitter:

“It’s true about the lawsuit. Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing – I offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100. Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court.”

A spokesperson on behalf of Radiohead told the Sun:

“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.”

Rey’s credits for “Get Free” currently lists herself, Kieron Menzies, and Rick Nowels.

Admittedly, the beginning part of “Get Free” does sound like “Creep,” but here are the two songs so you can compare for yourself. The chorus does go its own way, though, so maybe asking for 100 percent is a bit much.
