Lana Del Rey sued by Radiohead

Songs in the dock: landmark lawsuits and what they cost

The singer said that Radiohead was suing her because of finding alleged similarities of their song "Creep" (1993) with her latest single "Get Free" from her top-charting album "Lust For Life" (2017).

Warner/Chappell has now issued a statement, which claims no lawsuit has been filed and Radiohead have not demanded all the publishing rights for Del Rey's song "Get Free". "So we will deal with it in court".

Today Radiohead publisher Warner/Chappell has released a statement denying the lawsuit, but confirming that they are seeking writing credits.

"As Radiohead's music publisher, it's true that we've been in discussions since August of a year ago with Lana Del Rey's representatives", said a representative for Warner/Chappell.

"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".

Meanwhile, Lana has cancelled her show in Kansas City after coming down with the flu. 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.

Throughout the video, Fantano discusses just how similar the track's chord progression does sound similar to Radiohead's "Creep", but only so far as the verse of the song.

The Hollies own the legal battle and Radiohead were ordered to hand over a percentage of royalties and credit the writers.

Musician Owen Pallett observed that Radiohead's allegations are most likely to be based on the chord progression in the song's respective verses. "Because back in the day they were sued over this song, because this track had a similarity to another track".
