Yes. Even if you are offering the song for free download, you have to pay royalties at 9.1 cents per copy. In the US, nearly all songs are handled by the Harry Fox Agency. http://www.harryfox.com/public/

most of those sites that allow you to do free digital releases like soundcloud and bandcamp have it written in the user agreement that you are not allowed to release covers through their sites for just this sort of reason. i have done so anyway, i just make that one track streaming only while the rest of it is free to download.
