Call it a musical reconciliation, or at least a kind of therapy. Just days after the pair were arrested for disorderly conduct, Paul Simon and Edie Brickell have released a new duet together.

Titled "Like to Get to Know You," the song is a gentle acoustic ballad about finding new faith in old love. "I wouldn't trade places with anyone," the pair, married since 1992, harmonize. "Because I'd like to get to know you again."

"I know how you like your coffee," Simon sings. Brickell's rejoinder: "And I know how bad you drive."
