Ben Folds FiveFans of Ben Folds Five had reason to be optimistic last year when the original trio re-formed to record new tracks for Folds' career-retrospective compilation. It went well and Folds himself told MSN Music at the time that he could see no reason why it shouldn't become a full-fledged reunion.

"The Sound of the Life of the Mind" is due in stores tomorrow, Sept. 18, and will be the first BFF album since 1999. Here's an exclusive sneak-peek 24 hours before everyone else. "Thank You For Breaking My Heart" is classic Folds, and the band picks up as if the 13-year hiatus never happened. Click here to have a listen.

They'll be live in Atlanta the night of release, part of a U.S. tour that will take them across the states, then through Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom.
