On the heels of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announcing their nominees for the Class of 2020, the Songwriters Hall of Fame has released theirs.
Up for induction next year are OutKast, R.E.M., Pharrell Williams with Chad Hugo for their The Neptunes project, and Patti Smith, along with Journey, Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart from the Eurythmics, and the Beach Boys’ Mike Love.
Those eligible for enshrinement need to have racked up a “notable catalog of songs” in the 20 years since dropping their “first significant commercial release” according to the rules.
Voting will end on December 16, with the induction ceremony taking place on June 11, 2020 in New York City.
