Lana Del Rey confirmed Sunday that she is indeed facing a potential lawsuit over similarities between her song “Get Free” and Radiohead’s 1993 hit “Creep.”
Numerous reports surfaced over the weekend indicating that Del Rey’s song from her Lust For Life record was the subject of a copyright infringement claim via Radiohead. The two sides have reportedly been attempting to reach a settlement out of court. Radiohead has not commented, although Del Rey confirmed the news via 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.
