A spokesperson for Radiohead‘s music publisher Warner/Chappell has denied that the British band is suing Lana Del Rey over similarities between “Creep” and the singer’s song “Get Free.”
Del Rey previously stated that Radiohead’s lawyers have been “relentless,” and the band has demanded 100 percent of the publishing from her track. “We will deal with it in court,” she wrote.
“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,” the statement from Warner/Chappell reads. “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 favor of all writers of ‘Creep.'”
It continues, “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.'”
