Lana Del Rey offers update on Radiohead copyright lawsuit

Lana Del Rey sued by Radiohead

Lana Del Rey, known for her spacey musical compositions that have featured collaborations from hip-hop superstars like The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky and Playboi Carti, is in a whole bunch of trouble with the attorneys representing living musical legends Radiohead.

Taking to Twitter yesterday, Lana Del Rey announced the details of the lawsuit.

"Although I know my song wasn't inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing", she said. The dispute is over similarities between her song and Radiohead's "Creep". "Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court".

Read Lana Del Rey's original tweet below. "The band borrowed chord progressions and melodies from the Hollies" 1972 song "The Air That I Breathe", but no credit was giving upon initial release. Sammataro said Radiohead would likely prevail on that motion.

"It's understood that Radiohead's team are hoping for the band to either receive compensation or be credited on the list of songwriters to receive royalties".

"Whats hilarious is that the point in that song that Radiohead got sued over, is the chord progression, which basically matches that of the chord progression in a lot of similar ways, in the Lana Del Rey song". She said that she had offered the band as much as 40% of publishing rights in the song, despite not agreeing that her song rips off theirs.

Radiohead has never been shy about saying how sick they are of their hit song "Creep", even going out of their way for years to not play it live. Ever since the estate of Marvin Gaye successfully sued over similarities between Gaye's song "Got To Give It Up", and Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines", there's been an uptick in similar legal action and settlements.
