Del Rey's track is now credited to Lana, Kieron Menzies and Rick Nowels but Radiohead's lawyers are not taking this one lightly: "It's true about the lawsuit", Del Rey tweeted.

Singer Lana Del Rey says Radiohead is suing her, claiming she lifted the music from their hit 1992 song "Creep" for her single "Get Free".

During Sunday's concert in Denver, Colorado, the singer said "I do have a particular song that Radiohead wants 100% of my publishing for", but reiterated her song's importance and personal meaning. This issue will need to be settled in court. The similarities between "Creep" and "Get Free" are allegedly found in the verses of Lana Del Rey's cut. Released back in July 21, 2017, it quickly became the best-selling album upon its launch.

"It's true about the lawsuit", the hitmaker began.

"I don't think we showed any quality and the biggest disappointment is I didn't think we showed enough steel", he said. Sometimes it's not easy. "Obviously if you compare Wembley and Thursday night, it's a big change.

"Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court", she said. Ironically enough, they were sued for lifting parts of "Creep" from the Hollies' 1972 song "The Air That I Breathe".

Not wanting to be seen choosing sides, however, the Song 2 guitarist replied to a fan asking who he liked best, writing: "Always thought "creep" was incredible- I love Lana del Rey too".

The source adds: "It's understood that Radiohead's team are hoping for the band to either receive compensation or be credited on the list of songwriters to receive royalties".
