TikTok star goes viral after sharing 43-year-old dad’s unreleased song ‘Surrender to Me’

ONE TikTok user has revealed how he made his father’s 43 year old unreleased song popular.

Zach Montana, 19, first heard a song titled “Surrender to Me,” written by his father, William “Curly” Smith, playing on an old truck last month.

After deeming the funk-R&B track catchy, he uploaded to the platform a video of himself listening to it.

“Has part of a horn! Just wait… It’s so good! ” Montana can be heard speaking in the video. “He never released it! I’m very angry with him.”

The video accumulated thousands of plays overnight, with Montana telling Guardians that he “wakes up to texts from people I never get texts from – like my hairstylist – saying, ‘Yo, this is crazy!’

The song has now been played more than 3 million times and has been noticed by musicians like Meghan Trainor and Herman Li. American music critic Anthony Fantano called “Surrender to Me” a “banger”.

It has also been officially released on streaming platforms under the artist name FireCityFunk.

Montana’s father told Guardians that the track had been on the shelf for 43 years, said: “He just discovered it in his car, did one TikTok thing on it, and the rest is history”.

William has previously toured with artists such as Boston, Jo Jo Gunne, Steve Ray Vaughan, Belinda Carlisle and Willie Nelson.
