King’s wool could take legal action against the also interpreter Lorde After the second has supposedly been “inspired” “too much” by two songs by the American when conceiving a song for her latest album, ‘Solar Power’. According to The Sun newspaper, the former would already receive royalties on account of its indirect involvement in ‘Stoned At the Nail Salon’, but now it would like to be officially credited as one of the authors of said court.
As the aforementioned media assures, the two songs that would have been slightly plagiarized are ‘Wild At Heart’, belonging to the 2021 album ‘Chemtrails over the Country Club’, and ‘Hope Is A Dangerous Thing For A Woman Like Me To Have’, relative to its predecessor ‘Norman F ****** Rockwell’, released in 2019. More specifically, the similarities would be found in the main melodies of both tracks.
A member of Lana del Rey‘s personal circle has assured the newspaper that the singer-songwriter benefits from a percentage of everything generated by the New Zealander’s song, since the lawyers of both reached a preliminary agreement to resolve the dispute. However, now Lana would demand that Lorde publicly admit that she took those sound elements without permission to definitively settle the issue and avoid a legal conflict proper.
“The noise between Lana and Lorde has not stopped intensifying in recent times, but the truth is that no one from their respective teams wants justice to have to take part. But it is true that no one is oblivious to the enormous resemblance between Lorde’s theme and Lana’s two songs, and the latter wants to vindicate her creative role in all of this ”, assured the informant.
