Lana Del Rey confirms Radiohead lawsuit

Performing in Denver, Colorado last night, Del Rey spoke about the song at the centre of the lawsuit - "Get Free" - which she says may end up being removed from her latest album, Lust For Life.

Radiohead claims Del Rey's song, "Get Free", off her new album "Lust For Life", has similarities to their 1992 hit. "Although I know my song wasn't inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing", the 32-year-old singer tweeted. This issue will need to be settled in court.

Del Rey, Rick Nowels, and Kieron Menzies are presently working on "Get Free" as the writers, which some listeners have linked to "Creep".

It's true about the lawsuit. 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. But Twitter users have already had a field day with it, especially with the fact that Radiohead were accused of the same thing, with the same song, by soft rock band The Hollies with their 70s radio hit, "The Air That I Breathe".

The source adds: "It's understood that Radiohead's team are hoping for the band to either receive compensation or be credited on the list of songwriters to receive royalties".

Not wanting to be seen choosing sides, however, the Song 2 guitarist replied to a fan asking who he liked best, writing: "Always thought "creep" was incredible- I love Lana del Rey too".
