Should I sign up to PRS before I CDBaby my first track?

Not sure if I should just get this done off the bat to cover any eventualities, I'm going to get a dance tune out there and was wondering if I should sign up to PRS immediately!

Just tried signing up and PRS would not let me continue as my music is not being performed anywhere... surely for safeties sake before I go to a distributor PRS should allow you to register?

No don’t, it will cost you £100 if I remember rightly. Wait until you’re getting enough airplay to make it worth while.
