Del Rey may have taken to Twitter to clearly state her song wasn't inspired by the Radiohead hit, but she did offer nearly half of the song's publishing revenues.

Lana later appeared to confirm the reports, tweeting: "It's true about the lawsuit".

"As Radiohead's music publisher, it's true that we've been in discussions since August of a year ago with Lana Del Rey's representatives", said a representative for Warner/Chappell.

"It's clear that the verses of "Get Free" use musical elements found in the verses of "Creep" and we've requested that this be acknowledged in favour of all writers of "Creep". She said that while her song "wasn't inspired by Creep", she has offered up to 40% of the publishing to settle the matter. "Their lawyers have been relentless, so we will deal with it in court", she added. That is certainly the case for Get Free, Lana Del Rey's new song, which has been the subject of a copyright lawsuit between her and Radiohead. Two songs may sound similar to the untrained ear, but a musicologist may be able to show that the similarities are trivial or commonplace.

Radiohead have yet to respond to Del Rey's claims. Songwriters Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood sued and received co-writing credits and a percentage of the song's royalties after Radiohead admitted to the similarities. So, this could mean that depending on the outcome of this situation, Hammond and Hazlewood could potentially also receive songwriting credits on "Get Free".

Musician Owen Pallett observed that Radiohead's allegations are most likely to be based on the chord progression in the song's respective verses. Yet, there's legal limits to how much inspiration you can take, even if it's accidental.
