Lana Del Rey responds to Radiohead copyright lawsuit
Radiohead are suing Lana Del Rey for copyright infringement…
The band have accused Lana of copying elements of their 1993 track ‘CREEP’ on her song ‘GET FREE’ taken off her album ‘LUST FOR LIFE’.
Apparently both teams have been trying to sort it all out behind the scenes although nothing has been agreed to. A source has said that Radiohead’s team are wanting compensation or to be credited on the list of songwriters to receive royalties.
However…Lana has now responded to the situation herself and also cleared a few things up…
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.
