Lana Del Rey denies her song “Get Free” was inspired by Radiohead’s “Creep.”

Reports swirled on Sunday that Radiohead was suing Lana, and the singer took to Twitter to confirm not only is that indeed true, she tried compromising… but to avail.

The band is accusing Lana for copying elements of their 1993 hit “Creep” on her Lust For Life album track “Get Free.”

The Sun reported that “both teams are trying to thrash it out behind the scenes to prevent it going to court.”

They added: The source added: “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.”

Lana says she offered them 40% of the publishing, but they want 100% and she refuses.

“It’s true about the lawsuit,” Lana wrote. “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.”

“Get Free” credits Lana Del Rey, Kieron Menzies and Rick Nowels as writers.

I do agree there is a definite likeness with both songs. Listen to both below and see for yourself:
