Over the weekend Lana Del Rey confirmed on social media that Radiohead were suing her over her song “Get Free” over its likeness to the band’s 1993 song “Creep”.
In the statement, Del Rey said Radiohead’s lawyers were “relentless” in asking for 100 per cent of the publishing profits, even after she had offered the band 40 per cent. At a concert in Denver, the singer addressed her legal woes in between songs. She said though “‘Get Free’ is my personal manifesto”, and she’s considering removing the song from any future pressings of Lust For Life.
“I just want to let you know that, regardless of if it gets taken down off of everything, that those sentiments that I wrote, I really am still going to strive for them, even if that song is not on future physical releases of the record,” she said, according to NME.
She continued: “I just wanted to let you know that for the kids and for the not-kids, who are the real fans, who are here. So that’s probably the last thing I’ll say about it. But thanks.”
