Imperium is probably one of the hardest sounding songs I've made. It was inspired by the past couple of years of touring around the world. My intention was to write something that was fuelled by the energy of dance music but with a narrative element. It doesn't sound like anything else on the album yet it's an important part of it, it's the transition between two phases. I wanted to capture the feeling of 'confidently walking into adversity.'

– Madeon[1]

"Imperium" is the seventh track and lead single from Madeon's debut album, Adventure.


  • At the beginning of the audio video for the song, a column of Adventure alphabet text can be seen very briefly; the text, when translated from the alphabet into binary and then into English, reads "find the diamond".
