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.
But on Tuesday, after a few days of silence, Radiohead's music publisher, Warner/Chappell, made a statement confirming that it had requested credit for Radiohead, but denying that it wanted all of Ms. Del Rey's songwriting money.
Warner/Chappell has now issued a statement, which claims no lawsuit has been filed and Radiohead have not demanded all the publishing rights for Del Rey's song "Get Free".
"As Radiohead's music publisher, it's true that we've been in discussions since August of a year ago with Lana Del Rey's representatives", read the statement. "Their lawyers have been relentless", she added, "so we will deal with it in court". The dispute is over similarities between her song and Radiohead's "Creep".
It may have been an irresistible headline: Radiohead sues Lana Del Rey! Sammataro saidRadiohead would likely prevail on that motion.

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.
"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".
It has to be said, there are similarities between the two songs.
If you recall, "Creep" also had legal issues, and was accused of sharing a chord progression and melody with the 1972 song "The Air That I Breathe" by The Hollies. Radiohead meanwhile, ditched their original Brit Pop sounds as exemplified by "Creep", and reinvented themselves after lead singer Thom Yorke got really, really inspired by the IDM put out by influential electronic record label Warp.
