Lana Del Rey says Radiohead are suing her

Adjust Comment Print

They do not have all that much in common, but the singer-songwriter and the band have been locked in a heated legal battle since some fans noticed a similarity in the melody from Del Rey's "Get Free" and Radiohead's 1993 breakthrough single "Creep".

Lana Del Rey, who has released 5 major albums and a handful of EPs, is best known for her songs "Summertime Sadness", "Young and Beautiful" (which was used as soundtrack for the 2013 film version of "The Great Gatsby"), and "Love", among others. To win a copyright infringement suit, the band's lawyers would have to persuade a jury that Del Rey's song is "substantially similar" to "Creep", both qualitatively and quantitatively.

A spokesperson said: "As Radiohead's music publisher, it's true that we've been in discussions since August of past year with Lana Del Rey's representatives". "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".

Apparently LDR has offered up 40% of the song's earnings over the past few months but Radiohead isn't settling for anything less than 100%. Radiohead have claimed that is shows a startling similarity to their hit "Creep". In fact, Fantano notes that Sam Smith's "Midnight Train" is far more responsible for "ripping off" Radiohead Lana Del Rey's tune. "Their lawyers have been relentless", she added, "so we will deal with it in court".

Radiohead were actually sued by The Hollies over Creep's resemblance to their song, The Air That I Breathe. Sammataro said Radiohead would likely prevail on that motion.

"I do want to say there's a particular song that Radiohead want 100% of my publishing for", she began. She even said that this legal drama could force her to cut the song from the album.
