Radiohead lawsuit could force removal of ‘Get Free’ from her album, says Lana Del Rey
The ongoing battle between Lana Del Rey and Radiohead could have dramatic effects on the American singer’s fourth studio album Lust For Life.
Far Out Magazine reported the news that Radiohead’s copyright case was built on the comparisons between well-known 90s single ‘Creep’ and Del Rey’s track ‘Get Free’, a case that she later confirmed herself.
Now, while speaking on stage at a recent show, she explained that the song may need to be wiped from future copies of her album.
The track, which Del Rey had described as “my statement song for the record, my personal manifesto,” could be removed from future editions of her album Lust For Life: “I just want to let you know that, regardless of if it gets taken down off of everything, that those sentiments that I wrote, I really am still going to strive for them, even if that song is not on future physical releases of the record.”
On top of the legal issues, fans of both artists have made their feelings clear in the comments of the track, one says: “Really love Lana Del Rey but this song like ‘Creep’ from Radiohead,” before another user adds: “I think the melody might be inspired by it and similar, but it’s definitely not a complete rip off. They are two completely different songs.”
“This is a carbon copy of Radiohead ‘Creep’! And that’s why it’s good…,” the comparisons continue.
