Lana Del Rey could be sued for ripping off a popular Radiohead song
Lana Del Rey could be facing copyright infringement charges over the similarities between her song Get Free and Radiohead's Creep.
The band are reportedly considering suing the US artist if they do not receive compensation or a writing credit for the song.
Get Free is the last track on Del Rey's latest album, Lust For Life.
The Sun reports that both artists are trying to sort the copyright issue out themselves to prevent the matter going to court.
A source said:
“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.
“Both teams are trying to thrash it out behind the scenes to prevent it from going to court."
Get Free currently lists Del Rey, Kieron Menzies and Rick Nowels as writing credits.
Fans on social media have already noticed the similarities between both songs.
One Twitter user stated that she didn't realise that Get Free "sampled" the Radiohead track.
Another said that Del Rey's song "blatantly" reminded them of Creep.
let’s start with get free. perhaps the most blatant song that easily reminded of another song: radiohead / creep https://t.co/80zbKZOp70
