Lana Del Rey Addresses Radiohead Lawsuit at Denver Concert

Lana Del Rey Addresses Radiohead Lawsuit at Denver Concert

Del Rey's track is now credited to Lana, Kieron Menzies and Rick Nowels but Radiohead's lawyers are not taking this one lightly: "It's true about the lawsuit", Del Rey tweeted. The verses of Del Rey's "Get Free", off her 2017 album, Lust For Life, sounds eerily similar to "Creep", leading the band to reach out to the pop star's legal team.

"I offered up to 40 (percent) over the last few months but they will only accept 100", Del Rey wrote on Twitter.

"Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court", she said.

It's true about the lawsuit.

Del Rey also mentioned the lawsuit Sunday night at her Denver concert, telling her fans the song was her "personal manifesto" off the new album. Regardless if it gets taken down off of everything, that those sentiments that I wrote... that I really am going to strive for them, even if that song is not on future physical releases of the record...

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.

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". The band ultimately admitted this and settled a lawsuit out of court, with Hammond and Hazlewood now included as co-writers on "Creep".
