SanDisk is hoping to encourage sales of its new Sansa Fuze device by including up to 50 tracks on each device sold.

The tracks will be DRM-free, and limited to newer or emerging artists, and will be loaded on a separate microSD card rather than embedded in the device itself. For a limited time, anyone buying the 8 GB MP3 player will receive a promotional offer which they can redeem for the music sampler.

More than 30 record labels are participating in the promotion, including Polyvinyl Record Co., which will place tracks from Of Montreal on the card. Other artists include All Time Low, Ladytron, Magnet, Nada Surf and The Coup.
