Radiohead Publisher Refutes Lana Del Rey's Lawsuit Claims

Del Rey may have taken to Twitter to clearly state her song wasn't inspired by the Radiohead hit, but she did offer nearly half of the song's publishing revenues.
Lana Del Rey, known for her spacey musical compositions that have featured collaborations from hip-hop superstars like The Weeknd, A$AP Rocky and Playboi Carti, is in a whole bunch of trouble with the attorneys representing living musical legends Radiohead.
As it stands, co-writers Kieron Menzies and Rick Nowels are credited on the track along with Del Rey.
"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", the spokesperson wrote to Spin. "Although I know my song wasn't inspired by "Creep", Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing", she wrote. "This Lana Del Rey song is way too close to what is a rather unusual set of chord changes and a very distinctive melody line". "Their lawyers have been relentless", she added, "so we will deal with it in court".
Thom Yorke and his bandmates believe Lana's track Get Free, which features on her album Lust for Life, was heavily influenced by the 1993 single. Two songs may sound similar to the untrained ear, but a musicologist may be able to show that the similarities are trivial or commonplace.
Some may see Radiohead pursuing this case as a bit rich, given that their song Creep has been likened to Air That I Breathe by The Hollies. The band was said to want songwriting credit, money or both. Hammond and Hazlewood also split royalties with the band. She even said that this legal drama could force her to cut the song from the album.
Some songs resemble their inspiration more than others, though.
