At her concert in Denver on Sunday, Lana Del Rey warned that the song "Get Free" might disappear from “future physical releases” of her latest album, “Lust for Life.”

However, Today, after a few days of silence, Radiohead’s music publisher, Warner/Chappell, made a statement confirming that it had requested credit for Radiohead, but denied that it wanted all of Ms. Del Rey’s songwriting money, says The NY Times.

"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,” a spokesman for the company said in a statement. “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 favor 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."

A spokesman for Radiohead said the band had no further comment.
