Radiohead reportedly suing Lana Del Rey over copyright infringement

Adjust Comment Print

Ironically, the band themselves were once sued over the song, and now they're coming for 100 percent of Lana Del Rey's royalties from the track.

The singer confirmed Monday that she's being sued by the British band for her track "Get Free", which Radiohead says is a rip-off of its 1993 breakthrough hit "Creep".

Del Rey, Rick Nowels, and Kieron Menzies are presently working on "Get Free" as the writers, which some listeners have linked to "Creep".

'I offered up to 40 (per cent) over the last few months but they will only accept 100, ' Del Rey wrote on Twitter. Del Rey has announced that she will deal with the issue in court.

"Really love Lana Del Rey but this song like "Creep" from Radiohead", one user said, while another argues: "I think the melody might be inspired by it and similar, but it's definitely not a complete rip off".

Perhaps ironically, as pointed out in United Kingdom music publication NME, songwriters Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood successfully sued Radiohead for copyright infringement over the same song. She posted pictures and videos of her first concert on her social media which held in Minneapolis on Sunday, January 7. "As she was putting it all together and picking songs, it all kind of tied into this theme of 'lust for life'". The singer is all set to perform in Denver on Tuesday. "As she was putting it all together and picking songs, it all kind of tied into this theme of 'lust for life'".
