Radiohead haven't sued Lana Del Rey, according to the band's publishers

Radiohead's music publishers Warner/Chappell have denied the existence of a lawsuit against Lana Del Rey, after the singer claimed the English band was suing her for allegedly copying elements of their 1992 hit "Creep".

Lana Del Rey has told fans that she believes "Get Free" could be removed from her catalogue following a songwriting dispute with Radiohead.

Del Rey said on Monday, "It's true about the lawsuit".

"As Radiohead's music publisher, it's true that we've been in discussions since August of previous year with Lana Del Rey's representatives", read the statement. "Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court". The distinct melody, on the other hand, might be where Radiohead is taking issue - and where Lana might be in some trouble.

Radiohead Deny Lana Del Rey Lawsuit

Here's where thing get even more complicated: Radiohead was once in a similar situation with "Creep".

Subsequently, Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood have a share of the seminal Radiohead track.

The Hollies own the legal battle and Radiohead were ordered to hand over a percentage of royalties and credit the writers.

She further said, "I just want to let you know that regardless of what gets taken down off of everything, those sentiments that I wrote, I really am going to strive for them even if that song isn't on future physical releases of the record". Ever since the estate of Marvin Gaye successfully sued over similarities between Gaye's song "Got To Give It Up", and Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines", there's been an uptick in similar legal action and settlements. She said that she had offered the band as much as 40% of publishing rights in the song, despite not agreeing that her song rips off theirs.
