Lana Del Rey announces end of Radiohead lawsuit, sings ‘Get Free’ in Brazil

Lana Del Rey announced on March 25 that the lawsuit allegedly filed by Radiohead against her is over. Del Rey made the announcement during her performance at the Lollapalooza Sao Paulo 2018 in Brazil and stated: “I mean now that my lawsuit’s over, I guess I can sing that song any time I want, right?”

Lana Del Rey confirmed the lawsuit in a tweet last January. According to the singer, Radiohead is suing her for copyright infringement because her song “Get Free” allegedly copied elements from the band’s 1992 hit song “Creep“. She further stated that she offered to give the band 40 percent of the publishing, but they wanted 100 percent.

Her fans took to Twitter after the news made the rounds online:

On the other hand, Radiohead’s music publisher Warner/Chappell denied that the band sued the singer for “Get Free.”

“As Radiohead’s music publisher, it’s true that we’ve been in discussions since August of last year with Lana Del Rey’s representatives,” a spokesman for the company said.

“It’s clear that the verses of ‘Get Free’ use musical elements found in the verses of ‘Creep’ and we’ve requested that this be acknowledged in favor of all writers of ‘Creep.’ 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.’”
