Cohen received a lifetime achievement award at the Grammys last month
Canadian singer Leonard Cohen will be inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame this year, it has been announced.
Famous for such songs as Chelsea Hotel and Hallelujah, the 75-year-old will receive his accolade at a ceremony in New York on 17 June.
Earth, Wind and Fire members Maurice White, Philip Bailey and Verdine White will be honoured at the same event.
Established in 1969, the Songwriters Hall of Fame celebrates composers and lyricists and has over 300 inductees.
The body "honours those whose work represents a spectrum of the most beloved songs from the world's popular music songbook".
Producer and composer David Foster also joins the honour roll this year, as do composer Johnny Mandel and singer-songwriter Jackie DeShannon.
Former Earth, Wind and Fire guitarist Al McKay and their ex-keyboardist Larry Dunn will also be recognised.
Cohen's latest honour follows the lifetime achievement award he received at the Grammys last month.
The veteran performer recently announced he was postponing a scheduled tour of Europe for six months because of a back injury.
Cohen has given almost 200 concerts around the world since he returned to touring in 2008 after more than a decade's absence.
