The War is a stand-alone single by the New Power Generation, released initially as a RealAudio download from for a requested (but not required) $1.00 donation to Love 4 One Another Charities to be mailed to Paisley Park Studios.

A cassette single was sent the following month to people around the world (initially thought to be those who had ordered Crystal Ball from 1-800 New Funk, but this was not the case, as some people who had ordered the album did not receive the cassette, and some who didn't order it did receive the cassette).

A CD was later made available through 1-800 New Funk.

In 2005, the single was offered for download again through the NPG Music Club.
