Hold your horses, Radiohead say they haven't sued Lana Del Rey (yet)

Lana Del Rey has been in discussions with Radiohead since August

Lana Del Rey has been in discussions with Radiohead since August

Radiohead's publisher denies legal action.

Making her original claim on Sunday, Del Rey tweeted: "It's true about the lawsuit".

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

Radiohead publisher Warner/Chappell has since confirmed it wants writing credits - but denies a lawsuit.

"It's clear that the verses of "Get Free" use musical elements found in the verses 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'". However, according to the Warner/Chappell spokesperson, the band has not demanded 100 percent of the publishing for "Get Free", as Del Rey's tweet claimed.

The dispute centers on "Get Free, ' the closing track on her last album 'Lust for Life, ' which opens with seemingly identical guitar chords to 'Creep" at a similar, steady-churning tempo.

The publisher's request that "all writers of "Creep" be acknowledged in the "Get Free" credits is significant. Radiohead was earlier sued by songwriters Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood for similarities to the 1972 song "The Air That I Breathe", which the duo wrote for The Hollies.

English soul singer Sam Smith added Tom Petty to the credits, ensuring royalties, over similarities between Smith's ballad "Stay With Me" and the American rocker's 'I Won't Back Down'.
