  • This two-minute acoustic-guitar instrumental is an ode to Paul Simon's wife, the singer Edie Brickell. It is one of two instrumental guitar tracks, (the other being "The Clock") that function as interludes. Both were unused tracks originally written for John Patrick Shanley's play Prodigal Son, which had a limited run at New York City Center in February 2016. "I decided to insert them in the album just to give a little space after songs," Simon told Rolling Stone. "It lets the mind stop hearing words for a while."
