On Sunday, Lana Del Rey confirmed the lawsuit against her over the publishing rights to her song “Get Free” from her most recent album Lust for Life. Radiohead have claimed that is shows a startling similarity to their hit “Creep.”
“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.”
On Sunday night (January 7), Lana took a moment to address the crowd at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado about the lawsuit.
.“I just want to let you know. Regardless if it gets taken down off of everything, that those sentiments that I wrote… that I really am going to strive for them, even if that song is not on future physical releases of the record… 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.”
Fans can hear the full statement, along with a medley of “Change” and the aforementioned “Get Free.”
