Days ago, Lana Del Rey shared a social media post about against her — particularly “Get Free,” f her album Lust For Life.
Apparently the issue in question, the song’s similarity to Radiohead‘s “Creep,” has not sparked a lawsuit. The band’s music publisher has spoken out to set the record straight, after the singer tweeted the following.
While “Get Free” undeniably has some similarities to “Creep,” Radiohead insists there is no lawsuit — at least not for now. A spokesperson from Warner/Chappell says the part about wanting “100% the publishing” is untrue.
Official Radiohead Statement
“As Radiohead’s music publisher, it’s true that we’ve been in discussions since August last year with Lana Del Rey’s representatives. It’s clear that the verses ‘Get Free’ use musical elements found in the verses ‘Creep’ and we’ve requested that this be acknowledged in favour all writers ‘Creep.’ To set the record straight, no lawsuit has been issued and Radiohead have not said they “will only accept 100%” the publishing ‘Get Free.’”
