Paul Simon, Edie Brickell Release Post-Arrest Duet (Listen)


Paul Simon and Edie Brickell have released a post-arrest duet on SoundCloud. It’s called “Like to Get to Know You.” There’s no info with it, but my guess is that Steve Martin is playing the banjo. He and Brickell are working on a musical together. On Sunday, Simon and Brickell, as the world knows, were arrested at home in their $17 million New Canaan, Connecticut home on a domestic disturbance call. They subsequently held hands in court while explaining to the judge they weren’t a threat to each other. It’s a bizarre story, that’s for sure.
Here’s a couplet from the song–
Paul sings “I know how you like your coffee”
Edie responds: “I know how bad you lie”
Yikes! They need a bridge over troubled water!
