Singer Lana Del Rey confirmed she is being sued for copyright infringement by British rock band Radiohead.
A track on her latest album, Lust For Life, titled "Get Free," is alleged to be inspired by the band's 1992 hit "Creep." The song currently lists Del Rey, Kieron Menzies, and Rick Nowels as songwriters. According to Del Rey, Radiohead is seeking 100% of the publishing credit for it.
In a tweet posted Sunday, Del Rey wrote, "It’s true about the lawsuit. Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing - I offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100."
"Their lawyers have been relentless," she continued, "so we will deal with it in court."
