Lana Dey Rey has claimed that Radiohead may sue her over similarities between her 2017 song “Get Free” and their hit 1992 song “Creep” — but a spokesperson for Radiohead’s music publisher says they only want their writers acknowledged.
“It’s true about the lawsuit,” the 32-year-old singer wrote on social media on Sunday, responding to rumors that began circulating after British tabloid the Sun claimed that the band was considering suing Del Rey for copyright infringement.
Addressing the matter on social media, Del Rey went on to claim that her song was not inspired by the band’s hit single.
“Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100 percent of the publishing,” she wrote, adding that she had “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,” she continued.
