Paul Simon and wife Edie Brickell released a new song Wednesday, two days after appearing in court to defend disorderly conduct charges.

The two were arrested over the weekend by officers investigating a family dispute at the couple’s home in New Canaan, Conn. But appearing in court, the couple of more than two decades held hands and each said they did not feel threatened by the other.

The new song is called “Like to Get to Know You” and is a sweet three-minute acoustic duet that opens with the two sharing sentiments of estrangements, and then longingly noticing other couples getting along, before returning to a tender chorus: "I wouldn’t trade places with anyone, none of them. 'Cause I’d like to get to know you again."
