Lana Del Rey says she’s being sued by Radiohead for copying their breakthrough single Creep

"Get Free" is now credited with Lana Del Rey, Kieron Menzies and Rick Nowels as writers. The Sun initially reported the news, and the singer herself acknowledged its validity on Sunday.

Lana Del Rey has told fans her song Get Free may be removed from future hard-copy and streaming versions of her album Lust For Life, due to an apparent lawsuit put forward by Radiohead over the song's alleged similarities to their 1992 smash Creep. 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. This issue will need to be settled in court.

Listen and compare Lana Del Rey's Get Free track to Creep here. Released back in July 21, 2017, it quickly became the best-selling album upon its launch.

"It's true about the lawsuit", the hitmaker began.

The "Summertime Sadness" singer addressed her upcoming legal battle Sunday night while on stage in Denver, telling the audience that she still stands by the track.

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. Songwriters of The Hollies track, Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood, were listed as co-writers on Creep following an out of court settlement.

Which means if Radiohead wins, they'll get some of Lana Del Rey's royalties, too.
