Darren Criss performs "Runnin' Around" on 'The Late Late Show With James Corden.'

The actor/musician assembled a dream team including Este Haim to perform his new single.

Darren Criss made his late-night television performance debut Tuesday night on The Late Late Show With James Corden with "Runnin' Around."

He "got one hell of a gang together" for the first-ever performance of the song (originally titled "F*kn Around"), featuring Este Haim of HAIM (bass), The Pocket Queen (drums), frequent collaborator and San Fermin frontwoman Charlene Kaye (guitar) and the song's co-writer CJ Baran (keys).

The super troupe breathed new life into the dirty bass-driven anthem, which is the first of a "series of character-driven singles" Criss announced in March, that kisses off the toxic people one can't seem to stay away from.

"I love you @darrencriss and I’m so proud to usher in this era of STANKY DGAF ROCKSTAR back to back with you," Kaye tweeted on Wednesday (April 14). The Pocket Queen also praised the Glee star for tapping her for a "fantastic energetic set." "Darren, thank you for your support. Thank you for the shout out.Thank you for deciding to manifest this amazing moment and give me a call. Always my pleasure," she wrote on Instagram.
