In January, it was reported that Radiohead were allegedly suing Lana Del Rey for copyright infringement over similarities between her track Get Free and the band’s hit Creep.
Del Rey, at the time, claimed that she offered 40 percent of the track’s publishing to settle the dispute. In an online statement, she said, “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″.
She added: “Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court.”
Now, it appears the lawsuit may have been settled. During her set at Sao Paolo’s Lollapalooza festival, over the weekend, the singer performed Get Free, and addressed the crowd with: “Now that my lawsuit’s over, I guess I can sing that song any time I want, right?”
A representative for Del Rey is yet to confirm her claims. Watch the footage of her comments below.
