Radiohead Allegedly Sues Lana Del Rey for Plagiarism
UPDATE: Radiohead’s publisher releases statement
Radiohead has sued Lana Del Rey over her song, Get Free, which the British band says is too similar to its super hit, Creep, Del Rey confirmed Sunday.
"It's true about the lawsuit," Del Rey tweeted. "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."
According to Variety, Radiohead's representatives have not commented on the lawsuit.
Del Rey's Get Free is on her latest album, the critically-acclaimed Lust for Life.
Radiohead was previously on the receiving end of a copyright infringement lawsuit involving Creep. The Hollies' Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood successfully sued Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke for the song's melody similarities to The Air That I Breathe and are now listed as co-writers of Creep.
