Bombay Bicycle Club have posted their reggae version of 'Lights Out, Words Gone' online – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.

The Rub A Dub cover of the song, which was originally featured on their third studio album 'A Different Kind Of Fix', is on their new 'Leave It' EP, which is released on January 1 2012.

In an interview with NME.COM, guitarist Jamie MacColl previously explained why they had used the term Rub A Dub rather than reggae to describe the track, revealing: "I don't know why we didn't just put reggae – but if I saw 'Bombay Bicycle Club reggae version' I'd probably run for the hills.

"The original plan was to get a proper reggae band to do it, like an old school one, because we thought us doing it – four middle-class white guys from north London – probably wouldn't turn out very well."

The EP also includes acoustic versions of their tracks 'Shuffle' and 'Leave It' and a Flipbook remix of the title track.

Bombay Bicycle Club released 'A Different Kind Of Fix' in August of this year. The band tour the UK next April, playing a total of 11 shows, including their biggest ever headline show at London's Alexandra Palace.
