Lana Del Rey has drawn the ire of Radiohead's legal team.
Lana Del Rey, known for her spacey musical compositions that have featured collaborations from hip-hop superstars like The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky and Playboi Carti, is in a whole bunch of trouble with the attorneys representing living musical legends Radiohead. It seems the band and their representatives believe that Del Rey may have been a little too "inspired" by their 90's classic "Creep" and are taking swift legal action as a result.
"It’s true about the lawsuit," she said. "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." Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to appease the opposition, but Del Rey isn't about to back down. "Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court," she added.
While Radiohead haven't officially commented on the lawsuit as a band, they're definitely nowhere to be found in the credits. Only Del Rey, Kieron Menzies and Rick Nowels are seen in the credits for the track, which is off the Lust For Life album. Listen to both below and judge for yourself.
Update: Radiohead's publisher, Warner/Chappell, have denied the allegations that Del Rey set forth in her tweet, issuing an official statement to Pitchfork:
"As Radiohead’s music publisher, it’s true that we’ve been in discussions since August of last year with Lana Del Rey’s representatives," the statement reads. "It’s clear that the verses of 'Get Free' use musical elements found in the verses of 'Creep' and we’ve requested that this be acknowledged in favour of all writers of 'Creep.' To set the record straight, no lawsuit has been issued and Radiohead have not said they 'will only accept 100%' of the publishing of 'Get Free.'"
