Is Lana Del Rey’s “Get Free” Copied From Radiohead? According to the band lawyers it is. Del Rey twitted that the British rock band is claiming copyright infringement for similarities between their hit song and her 2017 track, “Get Free.”
It’s true about the lawsuit. Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by Creep, Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing – I offered up to 40 over the last few months but they will only accept 100. Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court.

Currently, the credits for Del Rey’s song list Lana Del Rey, Rick Nowels, and Kieron Menzies as co-writers. The results of the lawsuit can lead to the song’s removal from her album Lust for Life.
Radiohead’s “Creep,” is their most known hit, published in 1992. They also coped with copyright infringement accusations at the time, when the Hollies claimed the song has similarities to their’s “The Air That I Breathe.” That lawsuit ended with an out-of-court settlement.
When it comes to music copyrights, there are many aspects which define whether the song is original. In Del Rey’s case, the resemblance is undeniable. Check it yourself
