Yesterday, Lana Del Rey claimed on Twitter that she had been sued by Radiohead over similarities between her Lust for Life song “Get Free” and their 1992 hit “Creep.” “Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by ‘Creep,’ Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing,” she wrote. At a concert last night in Denver, Colorado, Lana spoke more in depth about the issue, as Lana Del Rey Files points out. She suggested that the song—which she calls her “personal manifesto”—might be removed from Lust for Life as a result of the lawsuit. “I just want to let you know,” she said, “Regardless if it gets taken down off of everything, that those sentiments that I wrote... that I really am going to strive for them, even if that song is not on future physical releases of the record... I just wanted to let you know that for the kids and for the not-kids, who are the real fans, who are here. So that’s probably the last thing I’ll say about it. But thanks.” Watch her deliver the full statement below.
Pitchfork has reached out to representatives for Lana Del Rey and Radiohead for comment. Circumstances surrounding the alleged legal action remain unclear; it is still not confirmed who, exactly, filed a lawsuit and where, and why “Get Free” would need to be removed from the album as a result.
