Lana Del Rey says Radiohead is suing her for copyright infringement

Radiohead is taking Lana Del Rey to court.

Over the weekend, Lana Del Rey revealed that Radiohead are suing her for allegedly ripping off "Creep" on her Lust for Life track "Get Free". "Although I know my song wasn't inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing", she wrote.

The dispute centers on "Get Free", the closing track on her last album "Lust for Life", which opens with seemingly identical guitar chords to "Creep" at a similar, steady-churning tempo. Released back in July 21, 2017, it quickly became the best-selling album upon its launch.

The 32-year-old singer wrote on Twitter, "It's true about the lawsuit". Reportedly looking to receive either a compensation deal or songwriter royalties, both artists' legal teams are both attempting to come to a deal to prevent the matter from going to court. 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.

Coxon was of course referring to the fact that Radiohead were originally involved in a legal battle with The Hollies over their 1972 hit, The Air That I Breathe.

Lana Del Rey is scheduled to tour Australia in March/April for the first time since 2012. Hammond and Hazlewood were awarded songwriting credits as a outcome.
