The lawsuit news arrives before Lana Del Rey does for a 2018 Australian tour (catch up on those dates here).

Lana Del Rey has taken to social media to address the rumours that Radiohead are "considering suing" her after they claim she ripped off their song Creep.

According to an unnamed source in The Sun, "Both teams are trying to thrash it out behind the scenes to prevent it going to court".

She said Radiohead were demanding 100 per cent of the royalties for her song, from the 2017 album Lust for Life. You can listen to Del Rey's song above, and Radiohead's below.

It's a pretty safe bet that Lana will have to cough up - "Get Free" and "Creep" do sound remarkably similar. After an out-of-court settlement, songwriters Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood were listed as co-writers on "Creep'".
