Lana Del Rey to meet Radiohead in court over 'Creep' claim disputes

Lana Del Rey to meet Radiohead in court over 'Creep' claim disputes

We're eight days into the new year and we've already got the first possible big music feud of 2018 on our hands. 

Alternative rock behemoths Radiohead are reportedly suing dream pop darling Lana Del Rey for copying their 1992 sleeper hit, Creep. The verses of Del Rey's 'Get Free', off her 2017 album, Lust For Life, sounds eerily similar to 'Creep', leading the band to reach out to the pop star's legal team. 

Del Rey has confirmed the rumors in a tweet, noting that her team has offered Radiohead a 40% cut of all 'Get Free' publishing. However, Radiohead's legal team has allegedly declined the offer, and will only settle for 100%. Del Rey has announced that she will deal with the issue in court. 

The general consensus of the internet is that Del Rey is guilty of copyright infringement, which explains why she readily offered a settlement to Radiohead's legal team. But Twitter users have already had a field day with it, especially with the fact that Radiohead were accused of the same thing, with the same song, by soft rock band The Hollies with their 70s radio hit, 'The Air That I Breathe'.

Lana was also quick to address the situation at a concert in Denver, Colorado.

Check out Lana Del Rey's 'Get Free' and Radiohead's 'Creep', compared below, to decide for yourself.
