In an interesting development, it’s been revealed that Radiohead are suing Lana Del Ray over her song ‘Get Free’, which they claim borrows from their 1992 breakthrough single ‘Creep.’

‘Get Free’ featured on Del Ray’s chart-topping 2017 album Lust For Life and is also nominated for a Best Pop Vocal Album award at this year’s Grammy Awards. According to the credits, the song was written by Del Ray, Rock Nowels and Kieron Menzies.

Confirming what a number of news outlets were already reporting, Del Ray tweeted, “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.”

The whole issue is ironic, considering that Radiohead were themselves sued for songwriting credits by Albert Hammond (father of The Strokes’ Albert Hammond, Jr) and Mike Hazlewood, who co-wrote the Hollie’s 1972 hit ‘The Air That I Breathe,’ which also bears striking similarities to ‘Creep.’ Radiohead eventually settled out of court and gave the two songwriting credits on the song, along with a percentage of the song’s royalties.
