"We have been talking more and more, because we make these holiday MP3s to send out instead of Christmas cards," Brickell tells Spinner. "We got this idea a few years back and after having done that and hearing the sound, we thought it might be a good idea to do something like a [duets] record."
What does Brickell have in mind? "I'd like to make them very, very simple songs that invite you to sing with them, as opposed to something elaborate or odd compositions -- an old-fashion record, that sits like a quilt."
"Paul can just harmonize with everybody," she continues. "His voice sounds so gorgeous, he makes everybody sound good."
For Brickell, 2011 marks the release of her third solo album, 'Edie Brickell,' as well as a new band called the Gaddabouts. But even though she and Simon are toying with the idea of recording together, Brickell still remains rather closed off as far as bouncing ideas off her husband.
"I'm extremely private about all that," she says. "He hasn't heard either of these [new] records. It's an incredibly private expression and I've always been that way, from the beginning. In the past, I'd say it would be like asking him to salt my food to his taste."
