Radiohead and Lana Del Rey head to court over copyright battle

Share

Hours after news of the legal fight broke the 32-year-old musician addressed the issue in front of her fans at a concert in Denver, Colorado on Sunday (07Jan18) - telling them she was prepared to remove Get Free from her Lust for Life album if necessary.

The song "Get Free" is the last track on her 2017 album "Lust For Life". "So we will deal with it in court".

Lana later appeared to confirm the reports, tweeting: "It's true about the lawsuit".

Speaking to music website Pitchfork, a spokesperson for publisher Warner/Chappell. She says that Radiohead have already been offered 40% of the publishing income, which broadly matches the percentage of Get Free which features the same chord sequence.

Del Rey previously stated that Radiohead's lawyers have been "relentless", and the band has demanded 100 percent of the publishing from her track.

At the time of writing, there's been no comment from Radiohead. 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". Neither have Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood, who were added to the songwriting credits of "Creep" after they complained that Radiohead had plagiarised them.

A source told thesun.co.uk that both Radiohead and Rey "are trying to thrash it out behind the scenes to prevent it from going to court".

Radiohead were themselves sued over the resemblance of "Creep" to The Hollies' song "The Air That I Breathe".

Eminem, for example, brought legal action against a political party in New Zealand claiming it used a song in its campaign so similar to Lose Yourself that it broke the law.
