Radiohead is denying claims made by Lana Del Rey that they are requesting 100% of the publishing of “Get Free.”

Radiohead is denying claims made by Lana Del Rey that they are requesting 100% of the publishing of “Get Free.”

Reports ran rampant this past weekend that Radiohead was taking Lana to court for copyright infringement. The Sun claimed Radiohead believed her Lust for Life track “Get Free” ripped off their ’90s hit “Creep.”

“Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by ‘Creep,’ Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing,” Lana said. In a concert the same day, the pop star said she may be forced to remove it from her catalogue altogether. Watch that here.

Radiohead denies her claims. Their reps gave a statement via Pitchfork that reads:

As Radiohead’s music publisher, it’s true that we’ve been in discussions since August of last year with Lana Del Rey’s representatives. It’s clear that the verses of “Get Free” use musical elements found in the verses of “Creep” and we’ve requested that this be acknowledged in favour of all writers of “Creep.” To set the record straight, no lawsuit has been issued and Radiohead have not said they “will only accept 100%” of the publishing of “Get Free.”

Sounds like it’s only a matter of time.
