Radiohead Are Suing Lana Del Rey For Allegedly Copying ‘Creep’

Radiohead are suing Lana Del Rey for allegedly copying elements of their 1992 hit ‘Creep’ in her song ‘Get Free’, from her latest album Lust For Life.

Del Rey has confirmed reports of a lawsuit against her and her songwriting team, taking to Twitter to say:

“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.”

While Radiohead are yet to publicly comment on the lawsuit, similarities between the two songs are clear. Stream both tracks in full, below.

Radiohead were allegedly sued themselves shortly after releasing ‘Creep’, over similarities to the Hollies’ 1974 song ‘The Air That I Breathe’. After an out-of-court settlement, songwriters Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood were listed as co-writers on ‘Creep’.
