Published Jan 09, 2018Despite Lana Del Rey stating the contrary, Radiohead are not suing her, according to the band's music publisher.
As previously reported, Del Rey tweeted over the weekend that Radiohead had slapped her with a lawsuit over her song "Get Free," due to it apparently ripping off the group's mega-hit "Creep." She even added that the Radiohead camp wanted "100% of the publishing" and demanded it be removed from her album Lust for Life.
Now, however, a spokesperson for Warner/Chappell has issued a statement to the media denying the existence of any sort of lawsuit. The statement reads as follows:
As Radiohead's music publisher, it's true that we've been in discussions since August of last year with Lana Del Rey's representatives. It's clear that the verses of "Get Free" use musical elements found in the verses of "Creep" and we've requested that this be acknowledged in favour of all writers of "Creep." 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."
Radiohead themselves, however, have remained silent over the brewing controversy.
Lana Del Rey's Lust for Life is available on vinyl, cassette, CD and digital download through Umusic.
