The new track, La Vague, comes from her fourthcoming third album and it sees her with a surprisingly pop and dance style a singer much more associated with a rock sound.
She commented on her Facebook page: "I saw that many of you are surprised, even confused with a view to the new direction The next album but know that i made it all with a huge sincerity.
"These new choices are mine, nobody other than a deep desire pushed me to change course and I am extremely proud to present my work.
"I love more than anything my first albums, and most importantly, I loved to share with you live."
Izia released her eponymous debut album in 2009, and followed it with 2011's So much trouble.
