Paul Simon and his wife, the singer Edie Brickell, have shared a joint song following their arrest on Saturday (April 26).

Simon was arrested alongside Brickell and charged with disorderly conduct following what is being described as a "family dispute".

Brickell has now posted a new track called 'Like To Get To Know You' on SoundCloud, which features Simon on backing vocals. "I'd like to get to know you again," sing the pair on the song, which you can hear below.

The couple appeared at Norwalk Superior Court in Connecticut on Monday (April 28). The pair held hands and Simon told the judge that it was a rare argument that led to their arrests. Speaking in court Simon said: "Both of us are fine together. We had an argument and it's fairly atypical of us; neither of us has any fear or any reason to feel threatened and I don't feel I need to be protected."

Brickell said in a statement: "I got my feelings hurt, and I picked a fight with my husband. The police called it disorderly. Thank God it's orderly now."



Police arrived at the singers' New Canaan home after receiving a 911 call from the property. Police discovered what they believed was a case of domestic violence upon their arrival. Simon and Brickell both said they did not feel threatened by the other following the arrest. The pair are due in court again on May 16.

Brickell, who fronted Edie Brickell & New Bohemians, is Simon's third wife. The couple were married in 1992 and have three children.
