Lana Del Rey has spoken in more detail about the lawsuit she’s currently facing, after Radiohead allegedly claimed she copied elements of their 1992 hit ‘Creep’.
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.
“I just want to let you know, that regardless of what happens in court, the sentiment that I wrote in that particular song — which was my statement song from the record, my personal manifesto, my modern manifesto…
“Regardless if it gets taken down off of everything… those sentiments that I wrote… I really am still going to strive for them, even if that song is not on future physical releases of the record,” she said.
“I just wanted to let you know that for the kids and for the not-kids, who are the real fans, who are here. So, that’s probably the last thing I’ll say about it. But thanks.”
Earlier this week, Del Rey took to Twitter to tell fans, “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.”
Radiohead are yet to publicly comment on the lawsuit.
