There have been rumors all week long. Some websites said their “sources” confirmed it and others said theirs denied it. So it was all up to Lana del Rey to do say one thing or the other to put the rumors to rest… or to the contrary, admit their veracity. Which was it? The latter!!!
Lana del Rey took to Twitter just moments ago this Sunday afternoon to confirm that indeed Radiohead are suing her for alleged copyright infringement. The Thom Yorke-led band band claim that the beautiful New Yorker ripped off their legendary song “Creep” and used its melody on her own song “Get Free”, the closing track on Lana’s latest album “Lust for Life”.
Here’s the confirmation:
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. Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court.— Lana Del Rey (@LanaDelRey) 7 de enero de 2018
Lana said on the tweet that when she heard of Radiohead’s intentions to pursue a lawsuit, she immediately opted to reach an amicable agreement (although always denying she got “inspired” by “Creep” for “Get Free”) by giving Radiohead 40% of the publishing rights, but her offer was turned down by the band, who asked for 100% of the publishing rights, something Lana won’t give them. But… why would she give them anything if she knows for a fact she didn’t have “Creep” in mind when recording “Get Free”? Maybe she’s afraid of the jurisprudence created by the “Blurred Lines” case?
Our thoughts: We've heard Lana's song and there might be some melody similarities (sorry, queen) but come on, 100% publishing rights? That's greedy.
