Lana Del Rey Sued By Radiohead For Copyright Infringement On "Get Free"

Jan 09, 2018, 00:46

"Get Free" is now credited with Lana Del Rey, Kieron Menzies and Rick Nowels as writers.

Singer Lana Del Rey said Sunday that English rockers Radiohead have sued for writing credit on one of her songs, seeing uncanny similarities to their breakthrough track 'Creep'. As previously reported, Del Rey offered Radiohead 40 percent of the publishing rights to "Get Free", but the band is insisting on 100% ownership.

It's true about the lawsuit. Reportedly looking to receive either a compensation deal or songwriter royalties, both artists' legal teams are both attempting to come to a deal to prevent the matter from going to court.

Del Rey's track is now credited to Lana, Kieron Menzies and Rick Nowels but Radiohead's lawyers are not taking this one lightly: "It's true about the lawsuit", Del Rey tweeted.

Perhaps ironically, as pointed out in United Kingdom music publication NME, songwriters Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood successfully sued Radiohead for copyright infringement over the same song. The singer is all set to perform in Denver on Tuesday. He also noted that it all branched off the titular song "Lust for Life", he shared, "It was definitely ground zero for this album".

Lana is now on the world tour following the release of her Lust for Life. "As she was putting it all together and picking songs, it all kind of tied into this theme of 'lust for life'".
