Radiohead Suing Lana Del Rey

Lana Del Rey has confirmed on Twitter that Radiohead is suing her for copyright infringement because the chord progression on “Get Free,” the closing track of her 2017 album Lust for Life, supposedly sounds too much like “Creep.”

Although Lana insists that her song doesn’t borrow from the cut and calls it a “personal manifesto,” even her most hardcore fans gotta admit that the gentle acoustic guitar prefacing the track’s chorus echoes the 1993 single’s most recognizable melody.

Strangely enough Radiohead has been sued over the same progression by Mike Hazlewood and Albert Hammond’s for their song, “The Air That I Breathe.” (Hazlewood and Hammond are now listed as songwriters in the liner notes of Pablo Honey, the album “Creep” belongs to.)

UPDATE: At a concert in Denver yesterday, Lana addressed the lawsuit to the crowd, saying, “those sentiments that I wrote… I really am going to strive for them,” reports The Fader. She also hinted that “Get Free” may be removed from future Lust for Life releases.
