Paul Simon, Edie Brickell Release Beautiful Duet ‘Like to Get to Know You’

By Annie Reuter

After 22 years of marriage, Paul Simon and Edie Brickell are still getting to know each other. The two singers just released a duet together, fittingly titled “Like to Get to Know You.”

The beautiful folk-fused ballad kicks off with the couple singing, “You share my heart/ You share my kids and my dog/ But I swear I don’t know you at all.”

Alongside acoustic guitar, the chorus gets even sweeter.

“I wouldn’t trade places with anyone, none of them/ ‘Cause I’d like to get to know you again,” Brickell sings. Listen below.

This past weekend, Simon and Brickell were arrested and charged with disorderly conduct. NC Advertiser, which originally reported the story, was in the courtroom during the arraignment April 28 and noted that Simon and Brickell entered “holding hands” and were both smiling.

“The both of us are fine together,” Simon reportedly told the court. “We are going to go back home and watch our son play baseball. We had an argument. It was very atypical of us.”

However, both Simon and Brickell will still be due back in court May 13.
