How do I check if an album exists in the Gallery app?

I'd like to output some markup if an album with a specific slug exists in a PHP file.

The logic would be like this:

If an album with slug name of "x" exists then output y.

I'm pretty sure this is possible but not sure how to do it. Any help would be appreciated.

I think I've answered my own question for anyone looking for something similar:

$album_exists = perch_gallery_album_details("name-of-album");

if ($album_exists !== false) {
    echo "the album exists";
} else {
    echo "the album does not exist";
}
