Earlier this week Lana Del Rey tweeted to confirm rumours that Radiohead are suing her over the similarities between her Lust For Life track "Get Free" and their hit 90s single "Creep". In the tweet, Lana claimed there is a lawsuit over the alleged copyright infringement and that although she had offered 40% of the publishing to the group "they will only accept 100".

This has now been disputed by Radiohead’s music publisher who have released a statement to "set the record straight". They say "no lawsuit has been issued" and "Radiohead have not said they 'will only accept 100%' of the publishing of Get Free".

They do however say that they’ve been in discussions since August of 2016 with Lana Del Rey’s representatives as "it’s clear that the verses of Get Free use musical elements found in the verses of Creep".

Take a look at the full statement below:

"As Radiohead’s music publisher, it’s true that we’ve been in discussions since August of last year with Lana Del Rey’s representatives. 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. To set the record straight, no lawsuit has been issued and Radiohead have not said they 'will only accept 100%' of the publishing of Get Free."

We doubt we’ve heard the last of this dispute between the two artists… Take a listen to both tracks below to see what you think.
