Paul Simon and Edie Brickell release duet days after arrest

Days after appearing in court together following their disorderly conduct arrests, Paul Simon and wife Edie Brickell have released a duet that seems to offer insight into their usually very private lives. 

"Like to Get to Know You" was posted on Brickell's website Wednesday, where she has uploaded dozens of songs over the past few years as part of her Song of the Day collection. 

The countrified, folksy tune contains lyrics that tell the story of a couple who wonder if they really know one another after all their years together. They seem to come to an accord with the line "I wouldn't trade places with anyone, none of them, because I'd like to get to know you again."

Longtime Simon pal and Brickell's musical collaborator Steve Martin tweeted about the tune.

Brickell and Simon have been married since 1992, and have three children together. They were both charged with disorderly conduct on Monday after a weekend dispute at their Connecticut home, and left their arraignment holding hands. The case has been continued until May 16.
